Phyllida Barlow’s sculptural practice is centered on her experimentation with materials and the process of re-contextualising them to create large-scale, three-dimensional collages. –
Barlow has been selected by Jupiter Artland Foundation to create a new site-specific, permanent commission. Launching their 2018 programme, her three-part commission for Jupiter Artland’s woodland will ascend, mimicking and playing with the tree canopy, opening up to reveal a dappled skyline and expanded viewpoint. The work will be created using Barlow’s trademark materials – cardboard, fabric, plywood, polystyrene, scrim and cement – as seen in her exhibition ‘folly’ commissioned by the British Pavilion for the 57th Biennale di Venezia.
Marking their 10th anniversary, Jupiter Artland (@jupiterartland) is one of Scotland’s most significant arts organisations, with five gallery spaces and an expansive outdoor sculpture collection, featuring landscaped gardens and site-specific commissioned artworks from some of the world’s most significant artists across 100 acres of woodland and meadows. –
