Freeborough’s wry comments on the human condition are supported by a thoughtful and intellectual approach to her work and an interest in scientific research. Many of her sculptures use classical imagery as a starting point from which to make contemporary statements.
‘The human body is central to my work, whether in form or suggestion. The sculptures are constructions, made from varying materials that best suit my ideas. These are based around the mind/body, drawing parallels between the uncertainty of how a person is perceived from outward appearances, and how ideas are perceived when transformed into sculpture. I aim for shifting unsettled work with informed and open-ended flexibility.’
The exhibition includes a series of new works inspired by a recent residency in Uganda, supported by the Ruwenzori Sculpture Foundation. Using a variety of local materials including bark-cloth and charcoal, Freeborough explores the human condition in an African context.
