Virtual exhibition



Alison Berman

Working with her hands and using tools are fundamental to who she is. She uses a wide range of materials for her sculpture – cement, clay, felt, found objects, metals, papier mache, plaster and non-toxic resins – and work at different scales according to the project.
Enquiry, experiment and exploration are key to her work. Her sculpture frequently contains elements of metamorphosis, such as a bird with a fish's tail or a dress which is a girl dancing with flowers in place of her head. Inherent irony and tension as well as humour and visual puns play an important part too.
Two essentials running through her work are the dynamic between sculpture and viewer. How people react – whether with curiosity, amusement, puzzlement or simply getting the joke - is part of the life of her sculptures and reactions from the audience are vital to her artistic practice.
