EMILY YOUNG : THE METAPHYSICS OF STONE | BERKELY SQUARE



FANA AND TEMPESTA

PLANET

One of our favourites, Emily Young is currently showing her latest, and largest, show in Berkely Square.

'In an undertaking which is set to be the largest and most complex of her career, Young is creating a series of sculptures from ancient, complex, volcanic stone.  She sources the boulders for her works from a disused quarry on Monte Amiata, near to her studio in a semi-ruined 17th century monastery in the Maremma, Italy.  The heads, weighing up to 3 tonnes, will be grouped in a circle, clearly visible to all those passing through or around Berkeley Square.'
Is on until the end of April and is well worth a visit. Thanks for FAS and particularly young Willoughby for the images and blurb.
