Andrew Logan: The Joy of Sculpture

About

Monday 27 September - Saturday 11 December 2021| 10am - 3pm
Bonington Gallery
Tickets: Free

The Joy of Sculpture presents a collection of Andrew Logan's work – from large-scale sculptures, mirror portraits and jewellery, and archive displays from his infamous Alternative Miss World competitions. Including new creations and those never shown before, this exhibition brings together all areas of Logan's practice in a single place.

Andrew's artwork reflects his unrelenting, and infectious, passion, joy and energy. Smashed glass and found objects are transformed, becoming flamboyant, colourful and glittering objects, in all shapes and sizes.

Key works within the The Joy of Sculpture include:

Goldfield, first commissioned by the Whitechapel Gallery in 1976, transforming half of the gallery into a giant wheat field.
Mirror Portraits, based on Andrew's family and friends – including visionaries Derek Jarman, Scarlett Cannon, and Duggie Fields. A four-metre-high mirror portrait of Duggie will be displayed to the public for the first time.
The Arum Lily Record Player sculpture, which Andrew has selected a daily record to be played at various times throughout the day.
Our Bonington Vitrines will house archive material from Andrew's celebrated Alternative Miss World competition. The infamous pageant, inspired by the Crufts dog show, was started in 1972 and hosted by Logan – who acts as both host and hostess. Contestants and judges over the years have included David Hockney, Ruby Wax, Leigh Bowery, Grayson Perry, and Zandra Rhodes.

Accompanying The Joy of Sculpture will be a programme of public events, as well as a commissioned essay by Lynda Morris, curator, writer and Andrew's acquaintance.

This exhibition has been curated by Joshua Lockwood-Moran, Assistant Curator at Bonington Gallery.
