Held in the Royal Academy's new venue for contemporary art, the exhibition covers Woodrow's entire career as an RA artist and examines key themes in his work since 1970s, highlighting his influence on contemporary sculpture. Along with his RA contemporaries Anish Kapoor and Antony Gormley, Woodrow was part of a group of celebrated sculptors born in the late 1940s and early 1950s in Britain who have helped to change public perceptions of sculpture. In the late 1970s, Woodrow begun appropriating everyday appliances and encasing them in plaster and concrete, then, in the early 1980s, he appropriate discarded household objects which he'd cut into different forms. He then moved away from 'found materials' and started to use welded steel and bronze for his sculptures. Woodrow has recreated works from his Breakdown series for the exhibition.
