A major solo exhibition of new work by Phyllida Barlow (born Newcastle upon Tyne, 1944), who is known for monumental sculpture made from simple materials such as plywood, cardboard, fabric, plaster, paint and plastic. Physically impressive and materially insistent, Barlow’s sculptures are inspired by engaging with the outside world, and with the experience of living and looking.
For this exhibition, Barlow’s working brief was to ‘turn The Fruitmarket Gallery upside down’. She has made a new series of large sculptures that engulf the Gallery in art,spilling from the upper gallery over the staircase and into the ground floor, enticing the visitor from the street and into the world of the her imagination.
