Abstract or Description

This conference considers multi-perspectival approaches to ‘fieldwork’ as an avenue of enquiry for thinking about sculptural practice. From earths and underworlds, remote landscapes, extreme locations and even invisible particles as the resource for artistic investigations, new insights will be gathered in response to the self-generating spaces of sculptural immersion and engagement with the properties and atmospheres of material environments.
