SARA BARKER: MATERIALS
Working with a combination of painting, welding and jewellery-making techniques, Barker (born Manchester, 1980) draws out unexpected properties in material with a sculptural fluidity and lightness.
Founded in 1953 as Ryder and Yates, Ryder Architecture is a leading architectural practice based in Newcastle upon Tyne, Liverpool, Glasgow and London. With its early achievements rooted in the European Modernism of Le Corbusier and Berthold Lubetkin, the practice has an integrated approach, designing buildings which elegantly fuse form with function.
Barker and Ryder have collaborated to produce an ambitious new sculptural work for BALTIC’s remodelled Level 2 gallery which explores and responds to the volume and architecture of the space.
