About

Karla Black’s unorthodox and innovative approach to sculpture has led to a nomination for the Turner Prize 2011. Using established art materials alongside more unusual items such as nail varnish, cellophane and bath salts she creates work whose fragility seems to echo her fascination with pyschological vulnerability. In this interview she talks about what sculpture means to her, and its power to evoke a physical response.
