Claire Morgan

Joy in the Pain

Claire Morgan’s (*1980) sculptures shake up our notion of a world neatly separated into nature and culture. She allows nature to break into the context of art by creating minimalist arrangements of plastic bits, seeds, and corpses. The artist uses taxidermy animals to fracture this supposed geometrical clarity, intermingling the artificial and the constructed with life and death. With her spaces and eco-poetic sculptures, Morgan creates a refuge for nature as still life, deftly bringing us closer to the endangered beauty and fragility of her fauna.

Joy in the Pain is being published as an exclusive COLLECTOR’S EDITION with a limited facsimile print.
