Barbara Hepworth on the sensation of being a female sculptor:  ”So many ideas spring from an inside response to form: for example, if I see a woman carrying a child in her arms it is not so much what I see that affects me, but what I feel within my own body. There is an immediate transference of sensation, a response within to the rhythm of weight, balance and tension of the large and small form making an interior organic whole. The transmutation of experience is, therefore, organically controlled and contains new emphasis of forms. It may be that the sensation of being a woman presents yet another facet of the sculptural idea.”

human carriage | 2009

Commissioned for “The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia: 1860-1989”
Alexandra Munroe, Curator
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York 

human carriage rimmed the Guggenheim’s parapet walls with a slender pipe to create a pathway, from the upper end of the museum’s ramp to the entrance below, for the descent of a wheeled carriage that housed two suspended Tibetan cymbal bells. Ringing intermittently the sound of the bells was both everywhere and nowhere within the spiral of the Frank Lloyd Wright rotunda.


As the bell carriage reached it terminus and came to rest at the bottom of the rotunda, it triggered the drop of a bundle of 
reconstructed books acting as conceptual counterweights in a system exchanging weight for weightlessness, and sound for the silence of reading. Like the many individual and disparate readers of a book the descent of the bell and the fall of the books was variable and responsive to the moment of each particular pull of gravity.
