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  Is everyone ok?  we see an older man in poor health with his face brightly painted like a lion bearing the mental scars of a career spent in middle management. Calling out team-building clichés, he intersperses these with personal responses to queries about his wife’s health. The effect is unsettling as he resides at the interface between work and retirement, usefulness and redundancy. 

																																																																						
																																																																						
																																																																					
																																																																				

The exhibition  Daphne Wright: A quiet mutiny  will be accompanied by a publication with texts by Ellen Mara de Watcher and Oliver Basciano.
