About Kenny Hunter: Natural Selection
Kenny's sculptures have an uncanny ability to make you stop in your tracks- Claire Lilley, YSP
This stunning exhibition of new and reworked sculpture, film and text by Glasgow-based artist Kenny Hunter was his largest to date.
Featuring works that recall injection-moulded toys, animated cartoons and fashion, his figures, animals and objects from contemporary life were presented as anti-monuments with a still and seamless clarity. While appearing to be mass-produced, they are painstakingly made using traditional sculptural methods.
Hunter constantly questions and responds to the world around him, and his remarkable talent enables him to make startling and thought-provoking works.

Kenny Hunter: BonfireKenny Hunter’s work is an examination of popular culture through the legacy of a darker history that continues to shape contemporary life. His work disrupts traditional modes of sculpture presentation by using bronze, which is associated with traditional statues or monuments, in combination with humble or everyday subject matter. This can be seen in the Bonfire works that are in the YSP landscape.
