Finissage of Laura Wilson: Folds

26 March 2017
Sun 26 Mar, 4 - 6pm 
SPACE Mare Street
FREE, al welcome

Laura Wilson’s commission, Folds, transforms the gallery at SPACE into an open workshop for the duration of the exhibition. Folds opened on the 12th of January 2017 with a torso-sized piece of Bath Stone on a custom-built workbench and a mass of fresh bread dough draped over wooden armatures. Wilson has been working in the gallery every Saturday alongside two London-based stonemasons, Nancy Peskett and Lily Marsh, to translate the textures and folds of the dough into the stone. The final day of sculpting will take place on the last day of the exhibition and there will be a finissage on Sunday 26th March to view the finished work.
