Webb’s commission for Frieze Projects East will see the construction of a permanent and interactive public sculpture that will be installed within a popular community park. Built from steamed wood, polished aluminum and cast resin, the work combines brightly coloured and large-scale public sculpture with elements of modular playground equipment. Webb’s sculptural exploration into material and form and his E-number saccharine colour-palette is available for children to clamber on as a living artwork.
Gary Webb (b. 1973) is a British artist based in London. Gary Webb’s sculptural works reference and draw on an array of disparate elements from material culture. Combining the forms and traditions of 20th-century sculpture with the synthetic materials and methods of the design industry, his works appear as idiosyncratic, nonsensical and playful propositions.
