Lookup NU author(s): Polly Gould


Full text is not currently available for this publication.


Polly Gould’s work on show at Volta 2017 shares some common origins in the horizontal and vertical ambitions manifested during the long nineteenth century, which, according to the historian Eric Hobsbawm, began with the French Revolution in 1789 and ended with the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. Drawing upon such references as architecture’s capacity for utopian visions, Victorian science fiction, and the Heroic Era of Antarctic Exploration, Gould presents drawings and sculptural works in blown-glass, stained glass, watercolour, gold leaf, fabric, and found objects
