Structure + Material: Karla Black, Becky Beasley and Claire Barclay

Arts Council Collection

Structure + Material
Film commissioned by
Arts Council Collection

Structure & Material investigates the work of three significant young artists, Karla Black, Becky Beasley and Claire Barclay, each who investigate the way we create meaning through form. Unlikely sculptural materials such as cosmetics, sugar paper, blackboard paint and brass hinges, or craft in the form of tapestry, are employed to diverse and distinctive effect. From elements that are sometimes meagre or over-familiar, new forms are created that are mysterious and highly evocative.
 
Structure & Material features a comprehensive body of work by each artist and includes recent acquisitions from the Arts Council Collection and installations made in response to Longside Gallery.
