THE SPACE BETWEEN
Emerging London artist Nick Hornby is one of eight artists shortlisted for the
inaugural Spitalfields Sculpture Prize. Nick's work features a large-scale, multi-
faceted sculpture that merges six aspects of Spitalfields -- an area with a rich, diverse
and overlapping history -- that become visible as one walks around the piece. A solo
exhibition of Nick's new work opens at the Alexia Goethe Gallery in May featuring
sculptures of cast jesmonite and resin. Generated by intersecting extruded cut-outs,
which are rotated and distributed around 360 degrees, the space between the forms is
intrinsic to Nick's process and the audience experience. Visit nickhornby.com.
The first major survey in the UK of
internationally acclaimed design maverick
Ron Arad is now on show at Barbican
Ar t Gallery. Ron Arad: Restless explores
three decades of Arad's designs from his
early post-punk approach of assembling
products from ready-made parts to his
exclusive and highly polished sculptural
furnishings. Familiar, mass-produced
pieces, such as the now classic Tom Vac
chair, feature alongside bold architectural
designs in a dramatic exhibition that utilises
cutting-edge LED display technology on
show until May 16. Visit barbican.org.uk.
