Cally Shadbolt

Fit for Purpose

8 - 14 August 2013


A previous Showcase exhibitor, and current MK Calling artist, Cally Shadbolt is a final year student at Bucks New University. She uses sculpture and drawing to explore the evolution of form in relationship to function, drawing attention to the aesthetic forms of objects that we disregard in our everyday lives.


Shadbolt adapts and alters objects, making material and formal changes that suggest new associations or act as clues to an alternative function. Through a process of appropriation and re-presentation Shadbolt aims to raise the status of the utilitarian object. Alongside the sculptural work, Shadbolt presents a series of observation drawings that explore the structure of objects and their potential for transformation.
