William Tucker at Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden, Wuppertal
  William Tucker - Sculpture

Venue: Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden, Hirschstraße 12, 42285 Wuppertal
Exhibition: 29 June - 1 September 2013

William Tucker (*1935 in Cairo) counted among the influential group of English sculptors who were introduced as the “New Generation” at the eponymous exhibition at London’s Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1965 and whose works provided new inspiration for the development of abstract sculpture as well as a far broader interpretation of the concept of sculpture.

William Tucker’s latest work now on show at the Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden takes the human figure as its reference. Despite their figurative reference, the sculptures are not immediately decipherable or nameable. Rather, the sculptures open up a wide range of possible associations, thus achieving their intense, undeniable physicality. William Tucker’s sculptures have a presence that relates to our body and so makes us aware.

Important sculptures from Tucker’s current creative period can be found, among others, in the collection of the Tate Gallery in London, at the Guggenheim Museum and the MoMA in New York, the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas and the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney.
