Referencing the contested role of the plinth in the history of curating and exhibition display, an installation of works are based on, and played off, this conventional elevator of art. Poppy Whatmore’s breezeblock plinth, It Left Me Cold imbues material, gesture and form with a rueful anthropomorphic narrative. A related work by CJ Mahony presents a geometric sculptural form integrated with a slick, black Perspex base, continuing her exploration of sculptural language and the lived experience. Recent works by Laura White explore the relationship between handling and touch with the plinth acting as a signifier for our separation from objects. Sculptures by Kate Lyddon present works as surreal anthropomorphic trophies, whilst Emily Speed’s Body/Building series locate her interest in the psychological relationship between buildings and the body. Two freestanding cabinets act as additional plinths, housing paintings, photographs, artists books and works on paper. They include pieces by Jemima Burrill, Rachel Busby, Emma Critchley, Aly Helyer, Evy Jokhova, EJ Major, Nadège Mériau and Lexi Strauss.
