Sculpture in liquorice !

Go for a walk in Grizedale Forest Sculpture Park in Cumbria and you will come across the five meter tall sculpture ‘Woman of the Water’, by contemporary Irish artist Alannah Robins. This work is ranked by the Guardian as one of the top eight sculptures of the female figure in England in a group which impressively includes artist Henry Moore. Another masterpiece by Alannah Robins – the playful ‘Reflex’ – is no more than a hand high. Between these two pieces is a  wide spectrum both in terms of size, material and expression.

Alannah Robins is now accepting the challenge to make a sculpture of liquorice and the goal is a scaled up version of her tiny girl Reflex. The sculpture will have an iron skeleton for stability, but will otherwise be made of liquorice. The sculpture will gain prominence during the Liquorice Festival March 21 – 22 in Stockholm, where Alannah Robins will tell about the process. Galleri Duerr will also present a new exhibition – Playfulness and the lack Thereof, including more prominent artists. Alannah Robins process will be followed by Liquorice Festival website / Facebook, where we will continuously update on what Alannah Robins needs in order to succeed in the creation of this unique work and we will all be able to assist her in this, nothing ventured nothing gained!
