I visited Camden Arts Centre on Friday to see Eva Hesse: Studiowork, an exhibition of experimental objects and test pieces that were left in the German sculptors studio at the time of her death, sold or given to friends, and have been gathered from public and private collections all over the world for the exhibition. The pieces are made from all kinds of materials such as latex, wire-mesh, sculp-metal, wax and cheesecloth......'they are extremely fragile and rarely travel'.

I love the colours, textures, shapes and surface qualities of the pieces, as single objects or curated in multiples; offering stories, evoking expressions and revealing her imagination. I couldn't take photos inside the exhibition, so here are some images from the accompanying book.
