Exhibition: TRUE TO SIZE – Heather Phillipson @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre
Feb 27 @ 10:00 – 16:00
Exhibition: TRUE TO SIZE - Heather Phillipson @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre

True to Size is a bold, colourful journey through seven sculptural vignettes that combine online culture with ideas of fantasy, emotion and care.

The exhibition features mass produced materials, such as large printed emojis and teddy bears with sound and video animation in a series of fantastical and furry sculptural narratives. In one scene, a bear wearing a pink ball gown climbs a set of cardboard steps, and then emerges triumphant from emoji flames. In another, a bear has cut itself in half with giant emoji scissors.

True to Size by Heather Phillipson was commissioned in 2015 by the Arts Council to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Arts Council Collection. As only the second time that this unique touring exhibition has been displayed in its entirety, this really is a rare opportunity to view this work in full.
