Francis Upritchard: Wetwang Slack
This hardcover book has been published to accompany the Barbican exhibition of the same name.
This autumn, New Zealand born and London-based artist Francis Upritchard has created a new, site-specific installation. Drawing from figurative sculpture, craft traditions and design, blended with references from literature and history, Upritchard pushes these practices into new directions, bringing them together to create a striking and original visual language of her own.
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully-illustrated publication, including a newly commissioned essay by writers Tessa Laird and Gwyn Porter, and an interview with the artist by exhibition curator Leila Hasham. The book is the eighth in a publication series by Barbican Art Gallery that focuses on The Curve exhibition programme.
