Sculptures and wall pieces by Alison Lochhead.
We are delighted to welcome Alison back for her third exhibition at Volcano.
The body of work in ‘Beyond the Boundaries’ is a collection of sculptures of bones and shoes – reflecting on migrations and people lost and unrecognised. Parts are left; bones or a shoe; but who was the person? Tall paper bodies with iron backbones stand watch.On the walls; a body of work that Alison made in response to working with astronomers. The pieces are made from silica, carbon and iron - ‘building blocks of earth and space’ – the process of pouring molten iron onto paper and oxides and the resulting imagery is like seeing explosions in space like the ‘world in a grain of sand’, echoing imagery of space and why material is formed or disappears, changes and transforms.
