To Exalt the Ephemeral: Alina Szapocznikow, 1962 - 1972

Friday 07 February 2020Saturday 02 May 2020

Sculpture by Polish artist Alina Szapocznikow (1926-73). Her work radically re-conceptualised sculpture as a vehicle for exploring, liberating and declaring bodily experience. This exhibition explores the material innovations she made during the last decade of her life. Born in Poland to a Jewish family in 1926, she survived the horrors of concentration camps as a teenager. In the postwar years, moving from Prague to Paris, she ultimately abandoned the Socialist Realism and modernist abstraction to embrace Surrealist tendencies and the Pop-influenced New Realism of the Paris avant-garde.
