ATKIN, J., 2016. Twister Nos 2. A 220 cm tall fabricated aluminum sculpture. Olympic Park, Stratford, London, Loughborough University London & Here East
Twister Nos 2 is a fabricated aluminum sculpture made in response to contemplation of the renowned Terracotta Warriors collection in Xian, China. The implied rotational form of this contemporary sculpture relates to my studies of acrobats that formed part of the collection of ceramic figures, which were buried in the mausoleum of the Emperor Qin, intended to entertain the Emperor in his afterlife.
