Due to the evolving situation with Coronavirus, this exhibition has been postponed.
Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre and PINK are delighted to present Liam Fallon, Courtship. Liam’s practice focuses on the combination of material and form, set within a wider exploration of queer culture. Inspired by What’s Love (or Care, Intimacy, Warmth, Affection) Got to Do with It? (e-flux and Sternberg Press, 2017), Liam’s new work responds to the phrase ‘machines of discourse’ which envisions a seemingly functioning object but with its form appropriated for another use.
The exhibited piece of work has been developed with the support of our Sculpture Production Award 2019. Liam has worked closely with Salford based fabrication company M3 industries over the past eight months to work through his initial concept drawings into a producible physical, three-dimensional form. It will also be paired with a new floor piece taking over the entire exhibition space.
The Sculpture Production Award 2019 was open to emerging artists working in 3D, based within the UK but outside of London. The Award provides six sculptors with skills mentoring and a £1,000 production grant towards the realisation of a new work. Find out more.
