New Spaces: Verges | Clare Gallagher at Gwyn’s Café & Pavilion, Derry


Date(s) - 14/07/2018 - 11/08/2018

Gwyn's Café & Pavilion





The photographs in Verges examine the potential for everyday resistance through the growth and habits of weeds. Attending more closely to our ordinary surroundings and appreciating the familiar undermines the capitalist desire for commodity and spectacle, for the exotic and dramatic. Observing and recording weeds offers a playful, life-affirming perspective that resists judgmental thinking about our everyday environment and invites us to experience it anew. At Gwyn’s café and pavilion the artworks form organic patterns on the walls creating a connection between inside and outside spaces.
