Victoria & Albert Museum, SW7, to 14 Jan 2021
A column of flesh flows in the middle of the V&A’s courtyard of Renaissance sculpture. Except it is not flesh, it’s porcelain. Kneebone has modelled hosts of nudes in white-glazed hardened clay in a cascade of eroticism and suffering that recalls Rodin’s sculptural ensemble The Gates of Hell.
Kneebone shows her seductive inferno among the sensual statues of Giambologna and Vincenzo de Rossi.
