This September Pangolin London will host Carl Plackman: Obscure Territories, a major retrospective of one of the great British conceptual sculptors of the twentieth century.

Obscure Territories will take a long overdue look at Plackman's last three decades of groundbreaking installations and works on paper, including previously un-exhibited pieces. 

Carl Plackman is renowned for his works inspired by day to day activities in which he questioned, challenged, and sought to redefine more traditional notions of sculpture. As both a sculptor and tutor, Plackman's role in the development of British contemporary art is considerable, and many of his students have since become major names including Damien Hirst and Liam Gillick.

"Some things in a room. Some objects in relationship to each other. A set of propositions. A sequence of statements. Carl made art that resisted an easy set of solutions whilst at the same time showing you a collection of objects that always retain their objectiveness." - Liam Gillick

Pangolin London will pay tribute to his remarkable oeuvre, celebrating Plackman's playful and innovative approach to sculpture.

Carl Plackman: Obscure Territories will run from 9th September until 17th October 2015 at Pangolin London.
