Richard Wentworth is well known for his acute observations of our man-made environments, and for sculptures which deftly transpose the meaning of everyday objects.
Thinking Aloud was assembled from an extraordinary range of sources, bringing together tentative ‘first thoughts’ of designers, architects and inventors, with contemporary works of art and a diverse selection of objects from other spheres.
Thinking Aloud was an exhibition of eclectic choices and provocative juxtapositions. As Richard Wentworth says: “Various threads run through the exhibition, questions of size and scale, of how we give meaning to things, how we share value, how thoughts become ideas become realities.” The artist’s enquiring eye ranged over patents, prototypes, models and maps; a selection of a briefing model for the D-Day Normandy landings: a prosthetic hand from the Charing Cross Hospital; a process by the American architect Frank Gehry.
