Emotional Archaeology presents a number of key works spanning Daphne Wright’s career, and is the most comprehensive presentation of the artist’s work in the UK to date. Wright has been based in Bristol for nearly two decades, dividing her time between the city and Ireland. Often working from her studio at home, her practice draws on the suburban and the domestic realm to explore complex social issues and our understanding of society. The exhibition includes major sculptural works alongside films, prints, drawings and newly produced works, all of which invite the viewer to consider them on an emotional level.
