Part of the Arts & Humanities Festival 2013: Being | Human
The exhibition will be in the Quad for the full Festival fortnight and will be available to view during campus opening hours.
Gilbert Whyman’s sculptures celebrate the body, both human and animal. Some represent it classically, in classic materials – bronze, clay, wood. Others are more playful, inventing parodic forms out of industrial debris – scrap metal, plastic containers, wire and netting – and at the same time celebrating the human ability to transform the recognisable, and to recognise the transformations.
