Stour Space Gallery Fish Island will be hosting an art exhibition by Olivier F Adam at Stour Space Gallery from 1 to 30 October. Known as the ‘Gentle Sculptor of Hackney Wick’, Adam makes poetic, round-shaped sculptures intuitively made by hand by intertwining accessible materials such as lime, sand, plants and found objects.
His aim is to engage with his audience through memory and emotion leading an ongoing conversation about loss and uncertainty. Adam believes that sculpture is accessible to all through using simple materials that can be bought at builders’ merchants, or even found in your street. His sculptures create a dialogue with the audience through the sense of touch which allows connecting with our environment in a way that is impossible to our eyes.
The show will be able to be seen without a ticket from 8am until 10pm, though the numbers of people in the galleries will be restricted during busy times. Face masks are compulsory at all times and will be provided at the entrance and social distancing guidelines must be followed.
