Over the past ten years Pangolin London have curated a dynamic programme of nearly 70 exhibitions of sculpture. From major solo shows by renowned British sculptors and museum-quality historical shows to monumental survey shows of sculptors drawings, Pangolin London’s approach has been ambitious. Gallery Director Polly Bielecka writes:
Our remit from the outset has been to promote sculpture in all its forms, to look at the traditional canon of British sculpture with a fresh approach and to support young sculptors through our residency programme. Whilst we are first and foremost a commercial gallery, our exhibitions hope to educate and inspire our viewers and break down the barriers of sculpture by presenting it in unusual ways. I think our most challenging shows in a practical sense have been Sculpture in the Home and Sculpture in the Garden where we transformed the gallery into a 1950s period home and a full-scale garden complete with water sculpture importing 5 tonnes of woodchip and 6 fully-grown birch trees!
To celebrate its tenth year at Kings Place and to coincide with Time Unwrapped, Pangolin London will bring together highlights from the past ten years in a show called Decade. From miniature to monumental, and featuring a range of materials, the exhibition will not only examine the works that form the highlights but will also set them in a wider context, looking at how they were made and what happened to them after they left Kings Place. Pangolin London will also launch a new sculpture trail in and around the building and canalside at Kings Place.
