Richard Wentworth


Richard Wentworth’s works, encircling the notion of objects and their use as part of our day-to-day life experience, have altered the traditional definition of sculpture.  By transforming and manipulating industrial and/or found objects into works of art, Wentworth subverts their original function and therefore challenges our understanding of them by breaking the conventional system of classification.  These sculptural arrangements and assisted ready-mades play with the juxtaposition of objects that have nothing in common.  They often incorporate a range of materials not usually associated with art.
