Coppiced Wood: New Work by Junko Mori, The Holburne Museum, Bath
6th July – 8th September 2013
Great Pultney Street, Bath, BA2 4DB
Junko Mori is one of the country’s most exciting and innovative contemporary metalsmiths. Coppiced Wood is an exhibition of new work that is a direct response to the unique position of the Holburne Museum within the eighteenth-century landscape of Sydney Gardens. Much of her new work will be significantly larger in scale than previous work. It will be combined with loans of existing pieces by the artist to create a spectacular sculptural display in the Ballroom Gallery. Junko is a prize-winning metalsmith whose work has been exhibited internationally. Her observations of tree and plant matter are the driving force behind many of her sculptures which vary in scale from small objects in precious metal through to larger welded steel works of art.
