Ask anyone to define ‘sculpture’ and they will inevitably tell you it is three-dimensional and made of stone, metal, clay or wood – carved, cast or modelled.

Today sculptors use an enlarged range of materials, technologies and sites to challenge, redefine, stretch and manipulate those notions to deliver the concepts and ideas that concern them. They are sometimes subversive but always inventive and individual.

Light and Space presents the larger sculptures from the Aratoi Collection – those you have seen before and some not displayed for a while. The exhibition includes the works on permanent display in the Aratoi courtyard and foyer, and Aratoi invite you to consider them anew.
