La page Biography du site internet de Claire Morgan :

Claire Morgan was born in Belfast. She attended University of Ulster and Northumbria University where she achieved a first class degree in Sculpture. She is now based in London.

Since graduating she has pursued a career solely as a visual artist. She has exhibited internationally, with solo shows, residencies and commissions across the UK, as well as group exhibitions in Europe. At an early stage she developed a strong interest in the organic, in natural processes, and in the bodily connotations of natural materials. This formed the basis for her practice as an artist creating sculptural installations and continues to influence her work at present.
In 2004 Claire was awarded the Royal British Society of Sculptors Annual Bursary and Roy Noakes Awards for Come Fly With Me, a work that involved painstakingly repetitive and precise processes. She has continued to explore this way of working, and the challenges presented by her chosen materials and techniques have become an important part of her practice.
In 2006 she was awarded first prize for Red or Dead in the Premio Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, International Competition for Young Sculptors, Milan (for artists under the age of 40), and in 2007 she was selected as one of the Courvoisier Future 500 (top 10 art and design), featured in The Observer.
In 2008, a new body of work entitled Periphery formed a major solo exhibition at the James Hockey and Foyer Galleries, UCA Farnham, and Gone With The Wind, a commission for the Great North Run Cultural Programme exhibited at the Laing Gallery, Newcastle, received great acclaim.

Claire is currently working on temporary and permanent commissions for public spaces, as well as installations for private collections. She is also preparing for international group and solo exhibitions that will include new installations and drawings.

    Tout juste de retour de l’ expo suite à cet article. Je vous recommande d’aller voir ces installations aériennes pleines de surprises, qui ne laissent pas une impression morbide contrairement à ce que l’on pourrait craindre.
