ESW is delighted to be part of the 2019 Edinburgh Art Festival, and present work by Caroline Achaintre, Adam Benmakhlouf and Lucy Wayman.

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop have invited Caroline Achaintre to make new work for our central courtyard space. Achaintre is known for her sculptures in ceramic and metal as well as her drawings, prints, watercolours and fabric pieces in the form of tufted rugs. For this project Achaintre’s outdoor sculptures, made from constructed and cast metal as well as elements of ceramic, will be an extension of her drawings of multipersonalities. The imaginative co-existence within one object-body, and a deftness in use of materials will create a perception of fluidity despite the rigid constituent parts.

Achaintre’s work brings together abstraction, figuration, humour and materiality. She often integrates small sculptures within larger support structures, called ‘display furniture’, and within whole exhibition schemes.

Caroline Achaintre was born in France and raised in Germany, she now lives in London. She studied at Kunsthochschule in Halle/Saale, Germany and then at Chelsea College of Art & Design and Goldsmiths College, both London. Recent solo exhibitions include Permanent Wave, Belvedere 21, Vienna (2019); BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art Gateshead (2016); and Fantômas, De La Warr Pavilion (2018). Her work was included in British Art Show 8, Hayward Touring which was presented in Leeds, Edinburgh, Norwich and Southampton (2016-17).
