Uta Brouet wins the ’Public Speaks’ Broomhill National Sculpture Prize


Our congratulations go to former Sculpture Diploma student, Uta Brouet, who has won the ’Public Speaks’ Broomhill National Sculpture Prize. Along with nine other finalists Uta had been given a £1,000 budget and 3 months to turn her proposed idea into a finished piece for the Broomhill Summer Exhibition. Her work, ’Wanderings’, was then voted as favourite by online viewers and visitors to the sculpture gardens.

Uta says of the piece, ’’Wandering’ represents an anthropomorphic figure, which has been inspired by a traditional metal tool. A totemic Guardian from the front, powerful in its erectness and stillness, a walking figure from the side. In my artistic enquiry I explore the vitality of an animistic parallel world. The in-between states of objects fascinate me, when they have lost their intended function, waiting to become something else. I’m interested in the emotional connections human beings develop with surrounding objects and I’m currently studying the psychological process which leads us to project a personified being onto an inanimate thing. Form and haptic sensations are essential to my work as they have the power to awake primal emotional responses in the viewer.’
