Popcorn Plaza

Solo exhibition at Jupiter Artland as part of Generation: 25 Years of Contemporary Art in Scotland

Michael Peter (Artist)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

From the press release: “Peter will create a cement wall relief environment with freestanding modular cement forms strewn with enlarged ‘popcorn’ kernels. The modularity is a connection to the primacy of the interplay between simple geometric shapes in historical concrete public art. The unpredictability of popcorn, meanwhile, represents both the ‘accidental’ sculptural nature of the eventual popped form and also some of the processes used in the modular components, namely the use of cast expanding polyurethane (a similarly unruly material).”
