Emily Young: Sculpture Trail

19 September - 18 November 2015

Nine large scale works by Britain's pre-eminent stone carver, Emily Young, are to form a stunning Sculpture Trail at the prestigious NEO Bankside development on London’s South Bank. These pieces act as both a continuation and a broadening of Young's presence on the South Bank, echoing the three large-scale works currently on long-loan facing the Tate Modern from NEO Bankside. 
Young's work echoes a sculpting tradition that looks back to humankind’s earliest relationship with stone. She fuses this sense of tradition with a distinctly contemporary approach, creating a strong paradox between the age-old principles of carving and a progressive, widely informed attitude to form and composition.
