Vigo is pleased to announce PORTA CARVE, a solo exhibition and series of demonstrations by James Capper.

The exploration of the nature of radical engineering, industrial production and hydraulic systems has yielded a collection of striking and unique hydraulic sculptures, including the title work PORTA CARVE which featured in his solo show DIVISIONS at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 2013 and LONDON TWELVE at the City of Prague Gallery in 2012. For the first time Capper will present new paintings (BROADCASTS) made by PORTA CARVE during the show.
