These sculptures are about horizontality in contrast to the verticality of many of Gillian’s recent works. They use weight to create balance; many of the elements aren’t permanently fixed so they only balance when everything is carefully positioned. The objects encased in concrete are her usual charity shop finds, that trigger memories of people, situations and time periods.
