2014 Sculpture Exhibition
‘Elemental’

The 2014 exhibition ‘Elemental’ explores dynamic sculptures that respond to the elements such as the wind or sun; including a wind sock, delicate shimmering kinetic sculptures that appear and disappear on the breeze and a photographic installation that uses sunlight to reveal the moon at Burghley. Other elemental sculptures on show display pure geometry; contemporary monoliths such as Mark Beattie’s spherical ball of linear swirling, Global Odyssey and Julian Wild’s knotted Ugli Fruit.

Sculpture al Fresco II

Sculpture Al Fresco II at Great Fosters

31st May – 31st August 2012

Great Fosters Hotel, Stroude Road, Egham, Surrey TW20 9UR

Marcelle Joseph Projects is delighted to present Sculpture Al Fresco II, the second annual outdoor sculpture exhibition in the grounds of the renowned Great Fosters Hotel in Surrey, the former royal hunting lodge of King Henry VII dating back to 1550 AD. This show, focussing on recent contemporary sculpture by 15 international artists, represents a unique view of the development of contemporary sculpture today.  Sculpture Al Fresco II takes a fresh approach, placing 22 sculptural works made over the last few years against the backdrop of a 450 year old stately home and one of the finest Arts and Crafts gardens in all of Europe. The landmark sculptures on display range from the five metre tall thrust of orange knotted stainless steel by Julian Wild sited in the grassed amphitheatre at the back of the gardens to the bronze interlocking chairs cast from human skeletons by Steven Gregory (artist mentor to Damien Hirst) placed in the Anne Boleyn Room inside the historic house.

The 2012 edition of Sculpture al Fresco includes contemporary sculptures sited throughout the 50 acres of gardens and parkland at Great Fosters as well as sculptures placed throughout the public areas of the Grade One listed house.  Visitors are invited to wander throughout the house and gardens in order to discover these sculptural masterpieces.

Mark Beattie (born 1987 in Nottingham) is a young London-based artist who has already exhibited his work extensively throughout England despite being an MA student in European Arts Practice at Kingston University. In 2011, Beattie’s work was exhibited alongside that of Helaine Blumenfeld, Lynn Chadwick and John Sydney Carter at A Decade of Sculpture in the Garden at the Harold Martin Botanic Gardens at Leicester University. Beattie’s sculptural practice revolves around the use of steel, making this industrial material appear fluid, malleable and aesthetic. Beattie’s largest work to date is exhibited at Great Fosters, a two and a half metre oblong sphere from his Global Odyssey series. This work, made from different thicknesses of steel rod and tubing with an aluminium wedge shooting down the middle of the work, has a sporadic look, chaotic but controlled.
