In this workshop, South Australian artist Anna Horne will direct participants in making sculptures cast in concrete and plaster using moulds made out of unexpected everyday materials. Using the force of gravity to their advantage, participants will make objects that explore the materiality of concrete and visual concepts of light and heavy, soft and hard, familiar and strange.

Anna Horne (b. 1986) is a South Australian artist exploring materiality, process and the transience of the physical world through the field of sculpture. Horne’s artwork references the domestic and architectural space by utilising both industrial and commonplace materials. Through experimentation in the studio, Horne re-examines and plays with the order of functional materials within the context of contemporary sculpture. She employs methods of casting and assemblage whilst combining structural materials like concrete, floor vinyl and styrofoam with found items such as beach balls, plastic bags and wine sacks to create sculptures exploring tension, contradiction and balance.
Anna Horne is a featured artist in the touring exhibition CONCRETE: art design architecture.
