Calderwood’s installation or sculptural work reflects ideas of purposelessness and risk taking through a precarious balancing of objects. He has taken everyday, unassuming objects – buckets, balls and ladders – and placed them together to create a sculpture that relies upon balance in order for the objects to be kept in their correct form. While the work is light-hearted, it is undoubtedly brimming with tension. The individual objects are pushed to their extreme limits. The objects combine with each other to create a new functionality, and rely on each other to sustain the sculpture. Destruction, chance, order and equilibrium all play a part in the composition of this work. The resulting work is one that is playful and dangerous. All of the objects are carefully orchestrated to avoid a complete collapse, reflecting Calderwood’s ongoing interest in exploring the co-dependent relationships that exist between groups of objects that are combined to achieve a sculptural goal. Calderwood’s artistic practice is underpinned by unconventional methods, and the artist continually placing constraints upon himself and the creative process.
