Prospect 7: Amanda Schoppel — Corporeal

April 17, 1999 - May 30, 1999


Curator:
Year 1999 Theme Emerging Artists, Nova Scotian Artists, Sculpture & Installation

Amanda Schoppel’s “Prospect” exhibition illustrated her inventive use of an unorthodox sculptural material, at an unprecedented scale. As she says:

Using looped rubber bands to build large forms is inherently labour intensive. I have my reasons for working this way. For me the rubber band provides abundant possibilities, involving tension or potential tension, internal systems and the inevitable degradation or life span.

The work has a fleshy quality that is irresistably tactile, both disgusting and appealing.
