Companions for the Latex Troll
An 'at home' by Sessa England
Sessa Englund spent the month of May in residency at East of Elsewhere, focusing on developing an expanded companion series to "Troll (2017)". Cast in latex and silicone, these pieces are a mode of exploring semi-figurative, gestural work surrounding a repeated figural exercise Sessa has informally titled "trolls". These figures are quickly taking on a mascot-like role for Sessa's sculptural practice. Sessa discussed this concept as a work in progress at an At Home evening.
