Richard Wentworth: 'Curating/Catering, Flattery or Philately?'
24 June 2009
At the Geological Society, Piccadilly
A Royal Academy Schools Event
Generously supported by the David Lean Foundation
Richard Wentworth is known both as an artist and as a chronicler of daily life. Since the 1970s he has played a leading role in British sculpture, isolating both the formal and sculptural qualities of everyday objects. Wentworth looks closely at the present by espousing the past. Looking back, he says, enables us to understand why and how we move forward. By excavating history and looking closely at the material ‘now’, Wentworth often collates and assembles a vivacious archaeology of the world we live in.
In this lecture, Richard Wentworth talks about his work and ‘Boule to Braid’ his exhibition at the Lisson Gallery, London.
