Monumentalism, representation and materiality – Thomas J Price at the V&A

In this film, we join artist Thomas J Price at the V&A as he discusses how his work raises questions of representation, perception and power, prompting us to think about the nature of monuments: who is represented and why? Placed in dialogue with the V&A collection, his sculptures occupy space, but, just as importantly, they 'make' space – space for discussion, for inclusion, and for what he calls "experiences in radical empathy". Combining a love for material with an acute observation of the language of sculpture, Price challenges established, exclusionary, social constructs to create a greater sense of connection, self-worth and shared experience.
