a line, a loop, a hoop
Bethan Radcliffe

5-15 December 2018

Radcliffe’s sculptural objects are a humorous exploration of our expectations of usefulness. They investigate what happens when recognisable and familiar objects, change location and are replaced by interpretations of their key qualities. The works are hand-crafted steel structures that have been stripped of their functionality, but hold an essence of their origin.

Bethan Radcliffe is originally from Chelmsford in Essex and studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee between 2014 and 2018, graduating with a BA in Fine Art. Recent exhibitions include Member’s Show, Generator Projects, Dundee, 2018; Assemblage, The Old Hairdressers, Glasgow, 2017; and Northern Lines, Lost Arch, Newcastle, 20176.


Radcliffe is the recipient of the Scottish Graduate Award Bursary Residency generously supported by The Fenton Arts Trust.
