6pm Friday 23rd March – 10pm Tuesday 3rd April 2012

We’re talking about form, we’re talking about content, we’re talking about interrelationships…meanwhile the statues run amok. Horrifying shocker as a biological experiment goes haywire when mutations invade a peaceful sterile environment. Therapeutic nesting and group therapy. The new church. The new asylum. The new emotional warrior. The warm comfortable huddle. Secret societies. The sculptures communicate with each other, creating dialogue beyond the original intent.

‘The Nest’ takes sculpture out of context, exaggerating the personalties of the works shouting to be heard and nurtured. Their physicalities are thrown into a strange new comparative community, enhancing their ultimate separateness while meditating strength in numbers. The B-movie gets introspective.

The sculptures start to creep at night. Don’t miss the madness.

Long walks by the shore of the Thames have brought Vinny Montag many amazing objects. They form a part of his sculpture and in doing so begin a new life cycle and fresh shape as something called art. Take a moment to allow yourself to engage and look carefully. Found objects have many stories to tell and meanings to discover.

Tobacco pipes, animal bones, bottlenecks, bone china fragments, rubber
shoe soles are all potential players in Vinny’s Thames sculptures. Using wooden boards and a paste made with sand and glue, he carefully selects and fixes these objects into their scene.

Most of the sculptures shown in this exhibition are imaginary portraits. Expressionist masks with a strong African influence and poetic titles, exploring Vinny’s interest in Dogon and Benin art. In combination with miniature modelling figures he creates situations and image bite narratives with such beautiful simplicity and humour.

The river and its castaways are speaking now.
