Rosie Leventon

Mark Tanner Sculpture Award 2001-2

Mark Tanner Sculpture Award Show:

The Bakery of Secrets

Exhibition: 19 September - 26 October 2002

Making permanent and semi-permanent sculptural installations for interior and exterior settings, the origins of Leventons work stem from an interest in archaeology and its effects on contemporary society.

Selecting materials for their meaning, Leventon creates forms that challenge the viewer in unexpected ways, working to create a dialogue between material, form and space.

'The Bakery of Secrets' attempts to critique elements in society which she percieves as deliberately secretive, aiming to penetrate the veneer of decorum in order to reveal latent truths.

To this end, the artist has created five new sculptural pieces. These can be viewed as individual works, yet have been concieved to create a dialogue with one another through the gallery space and so ultimately may be seen as one installation.
