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.
