Thinking is Making: Objects in a Space

Edited by Emma Benyon and Michael Taylor

Published by 'Black Dog Press’ in celebration of 20 years of the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award.

'Thinking is Making: Objects’ in a Space assembles voices of leading figures of contemporary British sculpture as they examine the relationship between the object and its maker within this mediated field. Dr. Jon Wood traces the influence of sculptures and sculptors who have defined the form in recent decades. An illustrated conversation between the award’s winners from 2013 to 2023 illuminates the development of diverse sculptural practices, locating sculpture in a space defined by both volumes of creativity and a dearth of access. And finally, a roundtable discussion between judges Lisa Le Feuvre, Phyllida Barlow, Hew Locke and Mike Nelson speculates on the future of the award, now entering its third decade, as it asks: Who are sculptors today? And what will they make?
