Claire Barclay | Deep SpoilsPrivate View

23 March - 23 March 2018

Private View 6pm Friday 23 March | All Welcome

Exhibition dates: 24 March – 2 June 

Mission Gallery is pleased to present this exhibition by Claire Barclay, a Scottish artist known for creating large-scale installations, often made in situ and in response to the spaces in which they are shown.

For this exhibition, her first in Wales, Barclay will reimagine and adapt existing works in order that they may be given another life in a new context. The sculptural forms inhabiting the gallery will reflect the city’s industrial heritage and embody evidence of the human endeavour, labour and skill that would have been echoed in the local coal, copper and pottery industries. 

This exhibition will provide a welcome opportunity to revisit and further explore the use of unstable, transient, ephemeral substances and examine the disconnect between the glorification of industrial achievements and the raw brutal nature of production.

Claire Barclay is represented by Stephen Friedman Gallery, London
