Anna Barham (UK)
August 2005 - January 2006
Wrapping and unravelling, Anna Barham is drawn to using local/vernacular materials, not specialist or ‘separate’ materials but things that are common to our everyday experience – bought from a builders’ merchant, on a market stall or just found on the street. Exchanging time with objects and materials, sometimes through repetitive and labour intensive ways of making. Time is somehow contained in the work, recalling handcrafts such as lace making where stories, memories, daydreams and mundane thoughts are caught within the pieces of lace.
The Process Room
Anna's work was shown in the Process Room, First Floor Galleries, IMMA, from 15 to 27 November 2005.
