Lack




Shown in the courtyard at 20-21, Lack features sculptures by Norwich based artist Susan Bowman. Each piece is created from a singular item of clothing soaked in plaster or acrylic solution, retaining the form of a female human figure.

The title ‘Lack’ references the writings of psychoanalyst Jaques Lacan who equates lack with desire. The female subject of the exhibition is both absent and present in these sculptures. The would-be object of desire is revealed in the shapes created through clothing and contours of the material. The resulting sculptures are alluring, haunting and beautiful.
