Claire Barclay, Longing Lasting, Stephen Friedman Gallery, London

Stephen Friedman Gallery, London, presents Longing Lasting, an exhibition of new works by the pre-eminent Scottish artist Claire Barclay. Pivoted on themes of continuity, need, and desire, the show combines interventionist sculpture and print works. Barclay’s hybrid objects are centred on the physical and the psychological tensions that exist between contrasting elements. They are at once recognisable and foreign and act as a surreal reflection of the world around us. This exhibition is the culmination of a year long exploration into the ideas, materials and methods which formed the basis for her recent museum show Overworkings at Touchstones Rochdale.
