Lynn Chadwick and Geoffrey ClarkeLondon. From 23rd October – 28th November 2015, Pangolin London will present the works of Lynn Chadwick and Geoffrey Clarke, two of the greatest modern British sculptors of the 20th Century. The exhibition, titled Conjunction, is the first to focus exclusively on the prolific careers of the ‘geometry of fear’ sculptors and will provide a rare opportunity to experience a vast selection of works spanning five decades, allowing visitors to experience the intertwining similarities and differences of their visual language. Highlights of the exhibition include:
· Clarke and Chadwick’s entries to worldwide sculpture competition The Unknown Political Prisoner exhibited together for the first time since 1953.
· Clarke’s candlesticks commissioned for Coventry Cathedral’s high altar, part of his decade-long series of commissions for its reconstruction following severe bombing during World War II. Clarke is best-known for his vast metal crown of thorns and stained glass windows which are the centre piece of the restored Coventry Cathedral – these constituted two of the most significant public commissions of the post-war period which remarkably, Clarke was awarded the year after graduating from the Royal College of Art.
· Previously unexhibited works on loan from several private collections.
· Chadwick rarely accepted public commissions and this exhibition is a rare opportunity to see the maquettes for two of Chadwick’s few public commissions, R34 1957 and Manchester Sun 1963.
· As part of the exhibition a colossal Lynn Chadwick sculpture, titled Sitting Couple on a Bench (pictured above), has been installed alongside the canal in King’s Cross. (Photo: Lynn Chadwick and Geoffrey Clarke)
