Daphne Wright’s work manoeuvres things into well-wrought but delicate doubt. Shifting between tautness and mess, it sets imagery, materials and language in constant metaphorical motion.
A quiet mutiny – persists is an assemblage of objects, videos, and works on paper, which addresses the poignancy as well as the mundanity of everyday domestic life. The scenes are imbued with melancholic familiarity; recreating in dried but unfired clay objects including a child’s pushchair, houseplants and a fridge. The artist chose these things because of their momentary quality that are only fleetingly valued in our daily lives. The exhibition also contains two new video works: Song of Songs and Is everyone ok?
