Join us for the preview of James Ireland's Zabludowicz Collection Invites exhibition on Thursday 5 May 2016. Combining found objects with natural and industrial materials, Ireland makes sculptures that reformat the tropes of landscape. Recent works employ bodily tubular lines of cast concrete that droop, hang, jump and pose in space.
