Jupiter Artland is pleased to exhibit the first outdoor commission by French Artist Caroline Mesquita, the artist’s first solo institutional exhibition in the UK. As with many of Mesquita’s sculptural tableaux the artist will depict an energetic scene of life size figures, impassionately staged, sharing emotive gestures over the unfolding event surrounding them. The artist presents such scenes reminiscent of Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People and the 2nd century BC marble sculpture Winged Victory of Samothrace, which root classical forms and scenarios within the artist’s approach to raw materials, such as steel and oxidised brass.
