Cathie Pilkington is the subject of this week's episode of the Sculpting Lives podcast. Hosts Jo Baring and Sarah Turner speak with Cathie about her practice at the Royal Academy of Arts (where she is Keeper). at her studio and at London's A.B. Foundry. Also interviewed are Simon Martin, Director of Pallant House Gallery, Chloe Hughes, A.B. Foundry's Manager and Anna McNay, independent writer and curator.
Cathie Pilkington reflects on her work:
The thing about my work is that there is a tension between a passionate love and engagement with the traditions of the past and a complete impatience with their irrelevance and it’s trying to hold those things in tension and trying to engage people in the complexities of that.
Listen to the episode online at Audio Boom or the Paul Mellon Centre website from 30 November.
