LOOP is an exhibition of all new work by Ramona Zoladek, the 2014-2015 Woon Tei Jee Fellow.

Public Preview: 16 Sep 2015 - 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Zoladek’s practice explores the relationships between nature, architecture and objects. It revolves around ideas of growth and ruin, as well as the history exposed by these objects and architectural units as they interact with nature.

Using time, process and their impact on materials taken from the junctures of these relationships, such as the kinds of materials found at construction sites and builders’ merchants, her work suggests structure, strength and durability, whilst simultaneously appearing vulnerable as though we are seeing these sculptures at a critical moment prior to their collapse or abandonment.

Ramona Zoladek is the recipient of the prestigious Woon Foundation Painting and Sculpture Prize, in partnership with Northumbria University and the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, and the work in LOOP has been made as part of this year-long Fellowship. She previously studied at the Cambridge School of Art, part of Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
