Straight lines and flat planes morph into looping and twisting volumes and sculptural reliefs in the new commission by Leonor Antunes (b. 1972, Portugal), inspired by weavings, geometric patterns, artisanal techniques and utilitarian designs. The installation features hanging and floor-based sculptures made from materials including metal, leather and rope, illuminated by lights designed by the artist. Antunes gathers references to overlooked figures in the history of 20th-century architecture, art and design, particularly women. Her commission has been informed by two artists who lived in London: Mary Martin (1907-69, UK) and Lucia Nogueira (1950-98, Brazil).
