The Contemporary Art Society is pleased to present The Artist’s Table with Conrad Shawcross. This bespoke artist curated event at the artist’s studio will take place on Thursday 23 February with a special dinner cooked by the artist.
Imbued with an appearance of scientific rationality, Conrad Shawcross’ sculptures explore subjects that lie on the borders of geometry and philosophy, physics and metaphysics. Inspired by different technologies, the artist’s structures may retain in appearance the authority of machines – yet, they remain enigmatic, filled with paradox and wonder. Some have an absurdist melancholy feel, while others tend to the sublime, substituting the purely functional for phenomenological experience. In the end, Shawcross’s art questions what we take for granted and encourages us to see beyond the physical.
