Oozing, squidgy, erupting kinds come alive at Hayward Gallery

With its reassuring sounds, smells and textures, getting into ‘When Varieties Come Alive: Sixty Years of Stressed Sculpture’ on the Hayward Gallery, London, is nearly like slipping again in utero. Sensation is the star right here, with an eclectic roster of rising and established artists experimenting with fertile kinds and sometimes viscous, spiky or stretchy materials for a deliciously multisensory group present.

Twenty-one artists have explored the probabilities of motion – the total roster contains Lynda Benglis (winner of a 2024 Wallpaper* Design Award for her Loewe jewelry), Drift, Franz West, Eva Fàbregas, Ruth Asawa, Nairy Baghramian, Phyllida Barlow, Michel Blazy, Paloma Bosquê, Olaf Brzeski, Choi Jeonghwa, Tara Donovan, Holly Hendry, EJ Hill, Marguerite Humeau, Jean-Luc Moulène, Senga Nengudi, Ernesto Neto, Martin Puryear, Matthew Ronay and Teresa Photo voltaic Abboud.

Works seize the unthinking instincts of an organism, showing to undulate, breathe, float, ooze and squidge across the architectural angles of the Hayward. Not like most exhibitions, guests can take a free route, reasonably than following a prescribed one-way system; right here, the gallery’s scattered areas lend themselves to the offbeat works of the person artists. With the sheer dimension of a few of the items, there was a danger of encroachment on one other work, a hazard effectively sidestepped in Ralph Rugoff’s curation, aided by assistant curator Katie Guggenheim and curatorial assistant Anusha Mistry.

Works are otherworldly kinds, inhabiting their very own dystopian universe. Eva Fàbregas’ tubular pink beings writhe round their very own pink-lit room. Tara Donovan’s epic, huge molecular constructions could possibly be a joyful pile of glitter balls or marine lifeforms, an eloquent argument for the fluid nature of sculpture.
