Jerwood Sculpture Prize at the Jerwood Space

Farouk Campbell

Works by eight sculptors short listed for the Jerwood Sculpture Prize, now in its second year, have gone on display at the Jerwood Space in Union Street.

The eight short listed candidates are Alison Gill, Gereon Krebber, Hew Locke, Simeon Nelson, Michael Shaw, Noah Sherwood, Ally Wallace and James Hopkins. Each artist had to create a small scale maquette of their works.

Works of note are Alison Gill's multiplying rabbits (Fibonacci Rabbit Generator) combining the use of mathematics, rainbows and the landscape, is both a colourful and humorous construction. Dendrite by Simeon Nelson contrasts well with real trees being a vectorised generated image of a tree; and Change by Noah Sherwood is an organic-like construction of discarded
material showing that such matter can be turned into meaningful creations.

The winner of the 20,000 will have his or her work made and displayed at the Jerwood Sculpture Park at Witley Court.

• Daily until Sunday 23 March.
