The term relic is used to describe something that has survived the passage of time, especially an object or custom whose original culture has disappeared, but also an object cherished for historical value such as a keepsake or heirloom……

New Relics presents a diverse range of contemporary positions in sculpture from a cross generational group of international artists. The exhibition demonstrates the multiple directions and potentials of sculpture and how it is continually shifting and being reinterpreted. The themes and concepts illustrated show the depth of the medium and the alluring power of materials to conjure new meanings and interpretations. New Relics is an opportunity to engage with these potentials that have come to encapsulate, and exist within, the definition of Sculpture.
