This paper explores autonomous space as subject and object in studio sculpture experimental studies with the backdrop of spatial subjectivities inherent culturally in Ghana. The study looks at contemporary Ghanaian art presentation of space as integral in sculptural compositions contextually, with interests shuffling between inner and outer space, as corresponding to spatial conception in conventional sculpture. Authors trace the traditional conception of space in sculpture and the gradual emergence of space as a medium in opposition to their subjective forms. The study further, through studio-based spatial experimental mappings in emerging contemporary praxis articulates possibilities in exploring autonomous space as medium in sculpture.
Key words: Space, Ghanaian subjectivity, sculpture, contemporary, theory and praxis.
