Ken Unsworth

Maquettes and Small Sculptures

-

Wollongong Art Gallery Until 3 November, 2019

Despite their minimal forms, Ken Unsworth’s maquettes and small sculptures – introduced into the artist’s oeuvre in the early 1970s – are conceptual­ly complex objects; precarious­ly propped, suspended, and on the fringe of calamity. These key themes of gravity, balance and apparent instabilit­y were prominent in Unsworth’s practice at the time, particular­ly his performanc­e pieces of which documented photograph­s and video as well as a number of his kinetic installati­ons are on display in this exhibition curated by Anthony Bond AOM.
