James Capper – Sculpture & Hydraulics

theedge-0217

The Edge is delighted to present a wide range of sculptures, drawings and films from one of the UK’s most exciting young sculptors James Capper.

An incredible young artist whose varied references include land art, farm machinery, insects and hydraulic engineering”. Jamie Eastman, Director of Arts, University of Bath

Fascinating for being recognisable yet other worldly, Capper’s machine-like sculptures suggest an interplay between art, technology and the natural world. The application of hydraulic engineering ensures each has the capability of land marking or sculpting when operated, however the experimentation and refinement deployed transcends componentry and purpose, rendering them as works of art.
