Andrew Logan: The Joy of Sculpture

We’re delighted to present Andrew Logan The Joy of Sculpture, a solo exhibition spanning 50 years of practice from one of Britain’s most iconic artists. 

Andrew – sculptor, painter, and jewellery artist – is known for challenging convention, mixing media and playing with artistic values. The Joy of Sculpture presents a collection of work – from large-scale sculptures, mirror portraits and jewellery, and archive displays from his infamous Alternative Miss World competitions. Including new creations and those never shown before, this exhibition brings together all areas of Logan’s practice in a single place.  

Andrew’s artwork reflects his unrelenting, and infectious, passion, joy and energy. Smashed glass and found objects are transformed, becoming flamboyant, colourful and glittering objects, in all shapes and sizes. 

Key works within The Joy of Sculpture include Goldfield, Mirror Portraits and The Arum Lily Record Player.

First commissioned by the Whitechapel Gallery in 1976, Goldfield will see the half of the gallery transformed into a giant wheat field.  

Mirror Portraits is based on Andrew’s family and friends – including visionaries Derek Jarman, Scarlett Cannon, and Duggie Fields. A four-metre-high mirror portrait of Duggie will be displayed to the public for the first time.  

The Arum Lily Record Player sculpture will play a different daily record, selected by Andrew, at various times throughout the day.

Our Bonington Vitrines will house archive material from Andrew’s celebrated Alternative Miss World competition. The infamous pageant, inspired by the Crufts dog show, was started in 1972 and hosted by Logan – who acts as both host and hostess. Contestants and judges over the years have included David Hockney, Ruby Wax, Leigh Bowery, Grayson Perry, and Zandra Rhodes. 

Accompanying The Joy of Sculpture will be a programme of public events, as well as a commissioned essay by Lynda Morris, curator, writer and Andrew’s acquaintance.

This exhibition has been curated by Joshua Lockwood-Moran, Assistant Curator at Bonington Gallery.
