STEPHEN SCHOFIELD | INSTRUMENTS OF JOY
From 9 November to 16 December 2023. Opening: Thursday November 9th, from 6 to 8 pm
McBride Contemporain is proud to announce Stephen Schofield's second solo exhibition with the gallery, Instruments of Joy (1). Although instruments appear not to do much on their own, they are curiously active. They are part of this world, but they also propose to change it. Their initial purpose is, of course, practical —to perform a task, but they also invite us to imagine what else we can do with them, how we can put them into action and consequently, what changes can be wrought by their actions. Sometimes, they even encourage us to take pleasure in imagining the world differently. These four sculptures, these instruments of joy, propose four such new worlds.
