In this large-scale commissioned exhibition of new works, Wright creates worlds that are beautifully eerie: familiar objects from everyday life come under the artist's scrutiny including buggies, houseplants, a fridge, and a child's drawing. Expanding on her existing sculptural practice, Wright focuses on the materiality of dry, unfired clay creating a dichotomy of familiarity and fragility. Two new videos, titled Song of Songs and Is everyone ok?, will also feature in the exhibition.
