Goats Heads, cast iron, UV resistant glitter and glass, by Ben Woodeson, 2018
Solid Gone: Curated from an open call by British artist Ben Woodeson, Solid Gone brings together a diverse group of forty-two international artists whose works address impermanence. Ben comments that he’s allergic to inert and boring lumps of metal... Impermanence and precariousness are widespread themes within the non-cast iron art world; Solid Gone seeks to ask how these conditions are manifested within the iron casting community. Whether literally or metaphorically fragile, ephemeral, or precarious, all the works use or involve cast iron.
