15 April - 8 July 2017.
Gallery Three & Four.
Clare Kenny works with a variety of materials such as found objects, building materials, neon and photography. Through subtle gestures and assemblages, and drawing on her own history, memories and experience, Kenny frequently adapts a personal story, proposing a new narrative and exploring the shifting line between fact and fiction.
For her first institutional solo show in the UK (Industrial Romantic), Kenny will present existing and new work in an installation that reflects the re-occurring interests in her practice and draws not only on her childhood memories of growing up in Heywood (Rochdale) and her new life in Basel (Switzerland) but also a collective experience shared by many.
In the lead up to her show opening, Kenny will be installing and making new work on-site in our galleries. During this period, normally hidden from view, she is happy to welcome members of the public to meet with her and gain an insight into her working methods on the following dates and times:
Tuesday 4 April: 2pm-3.30pm
Wednesday 5 April: 2pm-3.30pm
Tuesday 11 April: 10am-11.30am
Wednesday 12 April: 10am-11.30am
