‘Igloo’ was the first exhibition at Globe’s ‘Blanchford Sqaure.’ Underwood and Walsh’s mixed media installation created a space where boundaries between architectural, spatial and temporal fluctuate to playfully blur traditional distinctions between sculpture and painting. In ‘Igloo,’ a wall painting may become the backdrop for a sculpture and a sculpture may play host to a painting. The show perfectly complemented the new gallery by creating spaces within the space for visitors to experience and explore.
Sally Underwood is based in Berlin and Roxy Walsh in London. Since 2008, Walsh has been a lecturer in Art at Goldsmith’s University and has exhibited globally whilst Underwood was shortlisted for the Broomhill National Sculpture Prize 2010. The two artists have frequently collaborated, merging together their respective disciplines, sculpture and painting.
