Magdalena Abakanowicz: Corporeal Materiality

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Ahead of a major solo show at Tate Modern next summer, Marlborough gallery shows a selection of works by Magdalena Abakanowicz. The Polish artist blurred the distinction between textile artist and sculpture, while also giving pleasingly little consideration to the traditionalist categories of 'decorative' and 'fine' art. Her most famous works are the Abakans, glorious and huge woven sculptures looking like something you'd find at the very back of the mythological deep, dark forest. The exhibited artworks at Marlborough show how Abakanowicz used burlap, rope and other tactile, natural materials.
