Women Make Sculpture

Interview with Gallery Director Polly Bielecka
August 8, 2011

In 2011, gallery director Polly Bielecka invited a selection of female sculptors to participate in the exhibition ‘Women Make Sculpture’. This landmark exhibition at Pangolin London was the springboard to a still continuing series of group and solo exhibitions dedicated to women who sculpt. 

Sarah Lucas, Polly Morgan, Alison Wilding and Ann Christopher were all part of the first major exhibition celebrating women in sculptural art at Pangolin London.


Here, Crane.TV chat to director Polly Bielecka about the lack of female sculptors in 'blockbuster' shows after Louise Bourgeois and visit Rose Gibbs in her studio to discuss the her exhibited work entitled 'Mountain, work in progress'. The welded-steel, 89-pieced peak, a performative creation which included 20 volunteers, has caused most uproar due to interesting take on the female experience.
