Past Display Ran from 1 April 2017 to 14 January 2018

Rachel Kneebone at the V&A

Inspired by themes of transformation and renewal, Kneebone's complex porcelain sculptures are born of intense emotions, expressing movement and fluidity in a medium usually associated with stillness and calm

This spring, four porcelain sculptures by contemporary British artist Rachel Kneebone will be displayed amongst masterpieces of the V&A's sculpture collection, highlighting the sculptors' shared interest in capturing highly emotive states.
