Monumentalism, representation and materiality with Thomas J Price
Commissioned by the Victoria and Albert Museum,
In this film, Price discusses how his work raises questions of representation, perception and power, prompting us to think about the nature of monuments: who is represented and why? His sculptures occupy space, but, just as importantly, they ‘make’ space – space for discussion, for inclusion, and for what he calls «experiences in radical empathy». Combining a love for material with an acute observation of the language of sculpture, Price challenges established, exclusionary, social constructs to create a greater sense of connection, self-worth and shared experience.
