On Wednesday 27 January at 17:30 artist Richard Wentworth will give a presentation in Van Eyck’s auditorium.
All welcome to join!
Richard Wentworth is an artist working primarily with sculpture and photography. Since the late 1960s, his work has been concerned with material, language and the ways that humans cope with their environment. Countering the trend towards gigantism in post-war British sculpture, his work has always found aesthetic merit in modest events and things. Wentworth's repurposing of everyday objects continues the language game of the ready-made, begun by Duchamp, extending and inflecting it with a unique precision and material sensitivity.
