Installed across a floor of vinyl collages, The Pothole at Cross Lane Projects in Cumbria features a series of new sculpture and performance works developed over the past year by Mark Tanner Sculpture Award 2018/19 winner Anna Reading.
Combining layers of surplus commodity materials, including shredded foam, gravel, oyster shells, bitumen, chip forks and cardboard, Reading creates a highly tactile and fragmented environment. Her sculptures appear familiar and puzzling at once, existing between life form and architecture, ancient and futuristic and decay and regeneration. This new body of work continues the artist’s exploration into the absurd relationship between the organic and the synthetic.
