Tuesday 02 June 1998
It's degree show time. The big draw for talent-spotting is the RCA's Summer Show, attended last year by 35,000 people. Its sculpture show is at the Sculpture School, Howie Street, Battersea, from tomorrow to 14 June and the Fine and Applied Art Show is from Thursday to 14 June (0171- 590 4444). Meanwhile, at the Sheffield Hallam University degree show at the Psalter Lane campus - until Thursday - 21-year-old Susannah Colborn is offering her series of 12 "message cake" photographs (above), inspired by the thought of a mother, faced with a birthday party of obnoxious children, flipping her lid. The photographs are pounds 300 a set in an edition of 12 (0114- 225 2646).
John Greenwood graduated from the RCA in 1990. His exploding head, "New- Now-Wow!" (left), oil on canvas, 35ins by 29ins, is pounds 5,000 at his show at Jason & Rhodes, from tomorrow to 4 July. His catalogue blurb is all about El Diaboloque, a mega-El Nino, due any minute. So buy now? Prices pounds 700-pounds 9,000: 4 New Burlington Place, London W1 (0171-434 1768).
It's tribal art week, too. Bonhams has a 293-lot auction tomorrow (2pm), with estimates from pounds 100 to pounds 18,000, that includes this Dan wooden mask from Liberia. The fifth annual Tribal Art Fair at Elms Lesters Painting Rooms, Flitcroft Street, Soho, central London, has 15 dealers (prices from pounds 10-pounds 3,000) and is on Saturday and Sunday (11am-6pm). Inquiries (0171-836 6747).
There's something tribal - Neanderthal, perhaps - about the sculpture of 36 year old Nicolas Moreton. His work would be in public places by now, but for the rude bits. This 18ins tall celebration of fertility, in Hoptonwood limestone, includes a two-inch foetal form that can be removed from a hole at the back. Its title is "Homepride" - "Bun in the oven, you see," says Moreton. Price pounds 4,000. It is among 12 sculptors' work at the annual Young British Sculptors show at the Beaux Arts Gallery, 12/13 York Street, Bath, until Monday (01225-464850).
