15 April – 8 July 2017
Clare Kenny works with a variety of media including found objects, building materials, neon and photography. Through subtle gestures and assemblages, and drawing on her own family history, memories and experience, she frequently adapts a personal story, proposing a new narrative and exploring the shifting line between truth and fiction.
For her first solo institutional exhibition in the UK here at Touchstones Rochdale, Kenny chose to present existing and new work that reflected many of the recurring motifs and concerns in her artistic practice and drew heavily on her childhood memories of growing up in the area and on her life now in Switzerland.
This exhibition was presented in association with VITRINE Gallery. It was generously supported with funding from Arts Council England, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Cultural Fund UK, Kanton Basel-Stadt Kultur and the Friends of Rochdale Art Gallery.
Saturday 27 May 2017 | Artist Clare Kenny will discuss her practice and show (Industrial Romantic) with Francesca Bertolotti-Bailey (Head of Production and International Projects – Liverpool Biennial).
