b. 1963, Ireland
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. Using a wide range of materials – plaster, tinfoil, video, printmaking, found objects and performance – she creates worlds that are beautiful and rather eerie which feel like the threshold to somewhere new.
