THE POTHOLE

Anna Reading
Mark Tanner Sculpture Award

9 November to 14 December 2019

Cross Lane Projects is proud to present a solo exhibition of new work by Mark Tanner Sculpture Award 2018/19 winner Anna Reading

Installed across a floor of vinyl collages, Anna Reading’s The Pothole presents a series of new sculpture and performance works developed over the past year as the 16th recipient of the major UK award.

This new body of work continues the artist’s exploration into the absurd relationship between the organic and the synthetic. Reading’s sculptural structures appear as relics from an unknown future. She combines materials that cling to the sculptures ‘as if they’ve grown there without being cleaned away’, in an attempt to consider ‘what can grow uncontrollably out of moments of destruction and chaos’.
