Contemporary British sculptor Rebecca Warren presents new and previously unseen work at this major solo exhibition, which sees her interact with the geographical context and artistic legacy of St Ives.

Rebecca Warren, Let's All Chant, 2017

The first solo exhibition by Warren in the UK for eight years, this large show opens the newly transformed Tate St Ives, which has undergone a four-year project doubling its gallery space.

Spanning bronze, steel, neon and collage, Warren’s hand-sculpted forms draw connections between her practice to date and this unique setting and its past. They explore ideas around autobiography, feminism and the influence of other artists, as well as the histories and mythologies that fill the landscape of West Cornwall.

Having first come to prominence in the 1990s, Warren has exhibited widely in Europe and the United States and become known for works that reference and even intentionally misappropriate existing images by accepted ‘masters’ within the western canon, such as Willem de Kooning and August Rodin. By entering into dialogue with and reworking these images, Warren explores ideas around precedence and particularly the male lineage that precedes her.
