Eustance is interested in the way in which we interact with architectural spaces and how we use these as platforms of social exchange. With influences ranging from the infamous occupation of Taksim Gezi Park in Turkey 2013, to the religious paintings of Giotto, Eustance’s sculptures are elegant and thoughtful. ‘Pavilion After Giotto’ was installed in the Open Centre at Media City, and was originally commissioned for the walled garden of Grimsthorpe Castle.
