Holland's introduction to intriguing installations of a young Northern Ireland artist

8 September 2016

This autumn, the Noordbrabants Museum will exhibit the intriguing work of a young artist from Northern Ireland, Claire Morgan. After successful exhibitions abroad, including in Britain, this will be her first solo museum exhibition in the Netherlands. Morgan’s sculptures and paintings explore the vulnerable relationship between people and their natural environment. “My work is about our relationship with the rest of nature, explored through notions of change, the passing of time, and the transience of everything around us.”  Morgan’s work has already attracted lots of international attention in Paris, London, Milan and New York. The exhibition Claire Morgan, The Sound of Silence was made possible by the Renschdael Art Foundation and will open between 8 October 2016 and 8 January 2017 in Den Bosch, the Netherlands.
