This Serpentine Gallery exhibition is the first major solo show in a UK public gallery of the work of 2006 Turner Prize-nominated British artist Rebecca Warren. Her practice encompasses wall and floor-based vitrines, sculptures in clay and bronze that range from amorphous to more recognisably figurative forms as well as work that embraces both the formal and the grotesque.

Combining rich art historical and contemporary references, Warren challenges sculptural conventions while also engaging with the history of figurative sculpture and her position within this, predominantly male, tradition. This show will feature a selection of her best known works in clay and bronze, alongside new work made specifically for the exhibition.
