Libita Clayton @ Gasworks

January 24, 2019 - November 24, 2019

Quantum Ghost, the first UK solo exhibition and a major commission by Libita Clayton.

Consisting of an immersive sound installation, a series of large-scale photograms and a programme of live performances, Quantum Ghost maps a journey through archives and territories related to the artist’s heritage. Clayton digs deep into personal documents and oral histories tracing her family tree across different mining regions and colonial geographies of extraction. She reconstructs the paper trail left by her late father, a member of SWAPO (South West Africa People’s Organisation, the political mass movement that fought for Namibia’s liberation from Apartheid South Africa) who went into exile in the 1980’s and studied mining engineering in Cornwall.

Grounded in these sites of memory and testimony, Clayton’s research unearths the subterranean histories and political undercurrents connecting the mining regions of Namibia and Cornwall.
