In her new solo exhibition Tea Party, Ronit Baranga's sculptures turn into living things; wild, untamed and evocative.

An innocent child’s tea party gives way to a more complex scene: The girl – freeing her unruly spirit - her inner world projected on the objects surrounding her. The tea set - a symbol of civilised adult ritual - is marching in a mad parade. The baby, innocence aside, squashes a teapot and cup to a painful point. It could be the fragile nature or life-like quality of the sculptures - but something about Baranga's works is ever vulnerable, sometimes fearsome, and always compelling.
