Abi Charlesworth is a sculpture and installation artist who graduated from her BA
(hons) Fine Art course at Bath School of Art and Design in 2019. She has recently
had work in the shows After Hours in London, Dance First Think Later at General
Practice in Lincoln and completed an online residency with Arcade Campfa as part
of the collaborative MASH.

Objects are produced through the collective use of play, materiality and touch. The
forms of these sculptures are an unconscious translation of existing objects. This
allows the shape to develop freely to become disassociated with the familiar. In
essence, they act as devices of unlearning, freedom and playfulness. The need for
forms to exist purely out of aesthetic relationships results in installations of balance
and tactility. These objects gravitate and respond towards each other as if paused
in the act of play.

In the installation of these objects they respond conversely to the space they
inhabit; interchangeable they allow for free play, ideas and arrangements. The
leftovers of these decisions become deactivated with a potential to do or be
anything. The installation of these objects hover in the foreground in a type of void,
where sculptures float around the viewer and embody the space. Flatness is
prevalent in the production of these objects. From drawings they are inflated into
three-dimensional shapes concerned with their own edges. A form of self
consciousness holds these sculptures in place, as if they feel the weight of
observation.
