In her first solo exhibition in Asia, Virginia Overton presents new sculpture and works on paper.
On display is a new body of work which sees the artist reassemble aluminium advertising signs salvaged from the facades of high-rise corporate buildings into new sculptural forms. The exhibition also includes new works on paper, in which Overton uses adhesive vinyl to create graphic compositions evoking three-dimensional forms.
Virginia Overton's work comprises installation, sculpture and photography, often beginning intuitively as a direct response to her physical presence in a particular space. Through a process of trial and error, she creates sculpture that is performative, sometimes obstructing, bisecting, dividing or joining the architecture of a space with works that are dramatic and minimal in feel.FULL PROFILE
