Workplace is pleased to launch the third iteration of Reflections, a series of exhibitions focussing on the practice of women identifying artists working within a particular medium. Following from Part 1 and Part 2 which looked at the fields of painting and the moving image respectively, this exhibition brings together five sculptors whose work is constructed around a particular interest in systems of support, complex structures and unconventional sculptural materials. 


The artists in this exhibition both respond to and react against a gendered history of sculpture. From the gravity-defying structures of Hsi-Nong Huang, to the organic and anthropomorphic forms of Zhang Ruyi and Patricia Ayres, to the absurd and ambiguous objects of Olivia Bax and post-industrial sculptures of Nicola Ellis, the exhibition explores the wide range of ideas and approaches that are contributing to sculpture now.
