Hope Stebbing’s work is primarily sculptural with an interest in the duality of language. She investigates the urban environment and sites of regeneration, often taking standardised objects and forms from industry and the urban landscape and subverting them through the alteration of context and material. Her work aims to question areas of tension rooted in today’s society: enquiries into the role and function of the private sector and civic space.
She asks you to imagine an environment that listens to the past of site and speaks to its future aspirations, one that’s inclusive of history through the use of materials; addressing its ambitions through colour and form.
