MPV- Sculpture 2010 @ Broomhill
MPV contrasts high ambition with lowly materials, as though cobbled together in a back garden with one eye firmly on a low budget, and the other on the heavens. Deliberately ambiguous, this contraption to an unknown end stands in a small way for all our technology: -from toaster to submarine. This device is in some regards a folly to the machine age and our aspirations, a kind of ‘get me out of here’, a reaching from all that is everyday towards the divine, and a sense that all our tools are steps upon the ladder which we climb.
