The Crawford Art Gallery is showing a large-scale commissioned exhibition of new work titled ‘Daphne Wright: A Quiet Mutiny’. Wright’s work quietly addresses the human condition and the important stages of life we all pass through, which are at once poignant and mundane. In this exhibition, which fills two gallery floors, Wright creates worlds that are beautifully eerie: familiar objects from everyday life – including buggies, houseplants, a fridge and a child’s drawing – come under the artist’s scrutiny. Expanding on her existing sculptural practice, Wright focuses on the materiality of dry, unfired clay creating a dichotomy of familiarity and fragility.
Daphne Wright: 15 November – 18 February
