    Softbody Sculpture

    Meredith Turnbull
    May 2 - June 3, 2017

    Softbody Sculpture continues Meredith Turnbull’s exploration of the sculptural qualities of jewellery. Incorporating architectural model making and construction materials, Turnbull creates form-based jewellery with an emphasis on structure, shape, material, colour and surface. Using new textile elements, she experiments with the soft and fluid qualities of jewellery as sculpture through hanging and draping, sleeves, tubes and folds.

    Meredith Turnbull’s practice examines how objects function as both singular entities and as collectives; as autonomous elements but also parts of an expanding field. This field coheres various disciplines to examine how objects and images can create and program space, and draws on art historical research and the work of Russian Constructivist artists.

    Softbody Sculpture will run concurrently with Hardbody Sculpture at Daine Singer, an exhibition of Turnbull's two dimensional images and sculptures. The two exhibitions allow the breadth of Turnbull’s art practice – encompassing sculpture, images, decorative objects and jewellery – to be seen at the same time.
