Clamp 1986

Not on display

In this sculpture, a section of ventilation ducting is topped by a snake/branch, which is grasped by a golden fist and a transistor radio; this in turn is held together by a G-shaped clamp. This curious assortment of objects has been made from the metal cut out of the ventilation duct. The sculpture is typical of Woodrow's work of the 1980s, when found or discarded objects were ingeniously reused and enhanced. In an era of consumerism, Woodrow's sculptures are a positive symbol of recycling and regeneration.
