Daphne Wright: A quiet mutiny

15 November 2019–

16 February 2020

Crawford Art Gallery announces a large-scale commissioned exhibition of new work by artist Daphne Wright from 15 November 2019 – 16 February 2020 titled Daphne Wright: A quiet mutiny.

Daphne Wright’s work quietly addresses the human condition and the important stages of life we all pass through, that are at once poignant and mundane. In this exhibition, over two gallery floors, Wright creates worlds that are beautifully eerie: familiar objects from everyday life come under the artist’s scrutiny including buggies, houseplants a fridge and a child’s drawing. Expanding on her existing sculptural practice, Wright focuses on the materiality of dry, unfired clay creating a dichotomy of familiarity and fragility. Wright’s objects are chosen for their momentary quality, these objects are only fleetingly valued in our daily lives.

Two new videos also feature:

Song of Songs poignantly investigates the relationships of care adults have with more vulnerable family members and in the film
