Roger Hiorns

The work of Roger Hiorns conveys a compelling understanding of material and form. His practice takes place within a rigorous conceptual framework and a distinct knowingness of the sculptural tradition within which his work is placed. Presented in this catalogue is a selection of his crystallised car engines, the product of Hiorns' alchemical-like process whereby engines, mainly from BMWs, are submersed in a solution of copper sulphate, precipitating the growth of vibrant blue crystals that encrust the surface.
