Sculpture Rock Room Project


Rock Room | Wilkins Building (link Map)
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: FREE
Ticketing: Open

A 1-day pop-up experimental exhibition, open for ways of interpreting the specific space of the Rock Room, involving a number of objects and actions being inserted, tested and tried out within the geology collection.

Situated in a neighbouring context (Earth Sciences) the indirectness of this situation and space generates opportunities and questions which lie on the edge of exhibition making, looking at matter, materiality and form, both in real terms as well as to do with the fantasies surrounding the disciplines.

Last year's project featured handmade rocks, dust from the Slade studios and sellotape sculptures as well as the first images taken of the surface of the moon during the Apollo 1969 mission (loaned from Earth Sciences archives) and a discussion between sculpture students and geologists.
