Andrew Logan is delighted to announce The Joy of Sculpture, his first solo exhibition of 2021, is now open at Bonington Gallery in Nottingham Trent University. The exhibition presents a collection of work spanning 50 years – from large-scale sculptures, mirror portraits and jewellery, to archive displays from the infamous Alternative Miss World competitions. It including new creations and those never shown before, reflecting Andrew Logan's unrelenting and infectious passion, joy and energy. Key works within The Joy of Sculpture exhibition include:
Goldfield; first commissioned by the Whitechapel Gallery in 1976, Goldfield will see the half of the gallery transformed into a giant wheat field, complete with mirrored butterflies and mice.
Mirror Portraits is based on Andrew’s family and friends – including visionaries Derek Jarman, Scarlett Cannon, and Duggie Fields - a four-metre-high mirror portrait of Duggie displayed to the public for the first time.
The Arum Lily Record Player sculpture will play a different daily record, selected by Andrew Logan. It was the first 'singing' sculpture created by Andrew in 1970 and is on loan from the Museum of Sculpture.
The Bonington Vitrines will house archive material from the Alternative Miss World competitions - the inclusive pageant, hosted by Andrew since 1972. Contestants and judges over the years have included David Hockney, Ruby Wax, Leigh Bowery, Grayson Perry, and Zandra Rhodes.
This exhibition has been curated by Joshua Lockwood-Moran, Assistant Curator at Bonington Gallery. It is open now until 11th December and admission is free.
