Anya Gallaccio who was nominated for the Turner Art Prize in 2003 has made her name creating transient works using organic material, famously placing hundreds of gerberas behind Perspex and coating gallery walls with chocolate in Stroke at the Jupiter ArtlandUntitled 2016 however is permanent as a life-size stainless steel replica of a tree situated beside the Whitworth gallery in Manchester, it is the artist’s “first permanent public work” – discounting a piece in Edinburgh, which she says is “more of a private public space”.

For The Multiple Store, Anya Gallaccio created a multiple called Cast that brings together a handful of real English acorns and one unique cast bronze acorn in a box specially produced by BookWorks for the project. The buyer is invited to plant the acorns for the future, keep them to dry out and die or throw them away, leaving only the cast acorn. Cast has both the association with throwaway culture and that of permanence. Click here for more information and to buy Cast.

David Shrigley: Brass ToothHumour is also a protagonist in Shrigley’s edition with The Multiple Store, ‘Brass Tooth’ where he plays on our fear of the dentist’s chair by hugely exaggerating the size of the common molar, but confounds us by making it in solid, heavy brass.

Grenville Davey: House 2008 Steel and oak

The circle or disc is a recurring motif in Grenville Davey’s sculpture. House, an industrially spun steel vessel inverted, rusted and polished to a mahogany sheen, has a wooden handle set centrally, angled parallel to the dome.

Kenny Hunter: Black Swan 2013 Resin

Black Swan typifies Kenny Hunter’s use of anthropomorphic symbolism, the swan evoking human qualities of enduring partnership and love, while also alluding to ‘Black Swan theory’, a term used to describe inexplicable or unexpected events rationalised with hindsight, deriving from the fact that black swans were thought to be an impossibility. The piece exemplifies Hunter’s practice of transmuting historical ideas through sculpture.

Liliane Lijn: Lost Koan 2007 Glass-reinforced polyester, Perspex, fluorescent lights

A relatively recent version in Liliane Lijn’s series focusing on the shape of the cone, Lost Koan  has its parallel in the space above the earth’s poles where the solar wind meets with the earth’s magnetic field, referred to by astrophysicist Dr Stephen B. Mende as the ‘lost cone’.

Peter Liversidge: Interstate 2001 Aluminium (3mm), stove enamel, reflective materials, fixings (Edition of 10, published by The Multiple Store)

Interstate is a true-to-scale, reflective, American road sign produced using (federal approved) US Interstate Green and font, also called Interstate. Like my other watercolours and text pieces on the North Montana Plains, a real place which I never visited, ‘Interstate’ is about regret, imagination and hope. The sign to a place I never saw makes it a place I can always imagine. (Peter Liversidge)

Simon Periton: The Hanging Debtor 2013 Spray paint on powder-coated steel

The Hanging Debtor is typical of Simon Periton’s decorative ‘cover’ for more serious issues such as politics, popular culture and history. The figure, hanging upside-down, is based on a German illustration from 1438, in which bags of coins in the cloak appear to defy gravity.

Sarah Staton at the Folkestone Triennial until 2 November 2014

Sarah Staton is exhibiting at the Folkestone Triennial until 2 November 2014. For Folkestone, Staton has developed Steve, conceived as a ‘people friendly sculpture’ or a personified sculptural pavilion, and placed on The Stade. The Stade was originally a working area alongside ships berthing in the harbour, but now for the most part it has been given over to leisure and tourism.
