Sculpture in the Expanded Field

I've been reviewing and planning my PowerPoint for tomorrow mornings PGCE lecture and I was struck again but the simple but insightful writing of Rosalind Krause and particularly her piece 'Sculpture in the Expanded Field'. I am keen to explore with the students tomorrow issues around definition and the standing of sculpture in the curriculum. Her words are simple and key in my understanding:

Sculpture could be more than a carved or modelled object: –

it could be constructed

it could consist of many parts

it could represent an idea

it could be made from found objects

it could be a performance, an action event

it could use words, sounds, smells

it could use rooms, buildings, landscape

it could be the artist’s own body

it could be people

it could be you!
