Pastoral Scheme is an exhibition comprising of 4 works resting, hanging, standing, and leaning. It is a comment on modern architects and the change it has undergone to being square like and made of materials such as steel rather than the softer materials. Her works aim to upend conservative and neutral aspects of architecture, which I really appreciate, as some modern architecture has become so bland and this work has such a satisfying feel, and also has a touch of the 90s.
My first thought on the exhibition was how tactile everything was. It is work that you would want to touch and run your hands over as it draws you in. Some of the works have a textured surface whilst some are sanded smooth which creates a subtle contrast. Unkovich combines painting and sculpture together where they complement each other and work nicely all together. There is a theorist Clement Greenberg who thinks that they should stay in their separate categorise, that sculpture should be sculpture and painting should stay in painting, Unkovich has commented on this combing the two different genres.
