A solo exhibition by British artist Toby Ziegler (b. 1972), whose paintings and sculptures play with human perception.
Toby Ziegler, 'The alienation of objects', 2010. Installation Images Zabludowicz Collection Courtesy Zabludowicz Collection Ziegler has filled the main gallery space of this converted Methodist church with a vast installation, which comprises monumental sculptures composed of oxidized aluminium triangles. These are flanked by readymades including a weather balloon and a mechanical bull.
Ziegler’s starting point was existing art objects such as an Iberian Head stolen from Louvre by Picasso, yet the sculptures now seem like abstract, voluminous entities which have grown from a thin skin of metal.
Ziegler’s work process, in which he uses computer-aided 3D design and images sourced from the internet and then reinterprets them through three dimensional hand modeling, explores the relationship between the perfection of the computer-generated and the idiosyncracies of the handmade.
