The Art Of Bones

British sculpture has a lot to thank the Royal College of Art for - its students include celebrated sculptors such as Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Richard Wentworth and Jake Chapman. So, Londonist was pleased to notice that the college's sculpture show by this year's graduating students has just opened.

The centrepiece of the exhibition, by artist Jodie Carey, no doubt appearing in a Daily Mail diatribe soon, is a nine-foot wedding cake comprised of casts of 2,000 human bones decorated with hand-made flowers.

The college describes the exhibition's feel as one of "joyous exuberance" - which sounds like a cheerful way to start the summer's art exhibition season.

The RCA Sculpture Show 2007 is at the college's sculpture department, 15-25 Howie Street, Battersea. It runs until Wednesday 30 May, opening from 12 noon to 9pm on weekdays, 10am to 6pm at weekends. Admission is free. More information, including an online catalogue, available from the RCA website here.
