Brooke Benington and Canary Wharf are pleased to present the 2nd edition, State of Play, an exhibition of contemporary sculpture which reconnects us with a foundational characteristic of humanity, and the starting place for all artists. To play; for pleasure, for curiosity, for community, for the pure delight in doing. From theatre to sports, and primary schools to art schools, play is the overlooked epicentre of the human experience. It’s how we learn and how we evolve, adapt and create.
The RedHead Sunset Stack captures a bit of the awe that seeing a beautiful sunset inspires in Almuth Tebbenhoff – reduced to the form of a large toy-tower. At the centre the artist put a ragged and unstable human experience in pink and orange which is sandwiched between the steady blue earth and the red sun cubes. The earth and sun may be the only constants we have and even here we are at the mercy of incomprehensible forces.
