V&A: Kneebone’s Sculptures

I went to the Victoria and Albert museum today and I saw some really fascinating sculptures by Rachel Kneebone in response to the museum itself.

This one was in response to the cast of Trajan’s column. I think it brings to the fore the physicality of the carnage which war is and was.


Though the work did not appeal to me on an aesthetic or academic level, I could understand the narrative which Kneebone was weaving through the work in situ. It certainly made me, and others, go in search of the works with which RK’s sculptures were in conversation.

Overall, a good way to entice visitors to travel around the museum’s ground floor in search of RK’s sculptural work, and enjoying the many wonderful objects on display along the way.
