Pangaea Sculptors Centre ‘OPEN LECTURE’
The relationship between sculptural expressions, architectural forms and engineering principles is a complex one, particularly when considering the interplay between structure and surface. With reference to ancient, Renaissance and modern vaulted and domed structures, artist and trained architect Ken Wilder will reflect on the historical roots and contemporary context of this subject.
How might the translation of engineering principles into architectural response inform a critical sculptural practice? This will be discussed through the idea of the architectural proposition as neither a building nor a model but a sculptural experiment utilising concrete and other construction materials.
Join PSC and the artist-participants of ‘Both Sides Now’ for this public lecture which provides context for this experimental workshop. The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception that will culminate with a performance engaging both the body and an element of risk as we test the concrete structure developed over the course of the weekend.
