Claire Morgan: Artist Talk
We're are very
pleased to invite you to a presentation and talk with Claire Morgan herself, as
she explains the concept behind ‘Gone with the Wind’; a dense mass of thousands
of seeds and a lone Kittiwake Gull (all native to the route of the world’s
largest half-marathon) suspended, mid-air in a dramatic geometric form.
Claire Morgan will give audiences an insight into her
practices and methods as a sculptural installation artist with the opportunity
to ask questions.
This will take place on 27 November and you can read more about it or book your place, by clicking here.
