Presented by Sculpture Production Award 2019, Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre.Artist Katrina Cowling has been selected to exhibit at the Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art this October, where she will exhibit her new installation Of Brightworks and Edgelands developed with the support of our Sculpture Production Award. The artist’s work investigates the poetics of the automobile as emblematic of modern life and late capitalism; speed, leisure, status signifier, mass production, engineering, perceived freedom, drama, possibility and adventure. The vehicle is a recurrent motif throughout the artist’s practice; graceful lines, stylised postures and luxury interiors are fragmented and distorted, evoking a collision or a crash and a hint of a retro futuristic landscape.
