‘Baldock Pope Zahle’ presents a new sculptural installation by Jonathan Baldock, and newly commis-sioned work by Nicholas Pope and Maria Zahle in Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art’s spacious and newly opened up main gallery. The exhibition brings together artists of different generations who each explore an inquisitive relationship to materials and making. The show has been conceived as a conversation around shared formal and thematic approaches and, while the work is diverse, each artist makes sculpture that is resolutely unmonumental. In using materials such as glass, textiles and ceramics — Baldock, Pope and Zahle translate their own circumstances and lived experiences into exuberant and highly emotive work.
