During autumn 2007, we presented an exhibition of new sculptures by Laura Ford.
Typically human in scale or slightly larger than life-sized, Ford's socially and politically charged figures exist somewhere between the realms of fantasy and reality, childhood and adulthood.
Ford works with a variety of materials, often using what is to hand, from fabric and found objects, to more traditional materials such as bronze and plaster. For this exhibition, she created a group of sculptures and drawings based on the children's stories of Beatrix Potter, for the inside and exterior of Droit House.
This exhibition was presented in collaboration with Houldsworth Gallery, the Contemporary Art Society and The Economist Group.
