Louisa Fairclough’s solo exhibition weaves together the threads of musical hallucinations, chromesthesia and sketchbook imaginings with each gallery space re-presenting the work or visions of a conductor, a composer or an outsider artist. Fairclough’s photographs in which she holds her sister Hetta’s sketchbooks are one outcome of a notional collaboration. A conversation between sisters – one who lives and one who has died.
Louisa Fairclough is developing a reputation for her contemplative work. Ground Truth, was shown at Danielle Arnaud Gallery, London in 2011 and Ha gamle prestegard, Norway in 2012. Ground Truth went on to be shown in February 2013, with elements at Camden Art Centre, as part of Guy Sherwin’s exhibition Film in Space, and other elements concurrently at the Contemporary Art Society. She delivered performances at CAS and Plymouth Arts Centre in early 2013. Two of Fairclough’s drawings were shortlisted for the Jerwood Prize 2011.
Working towards a South West where talented artists thrive, and a resilient and connected visual arts ecology that inspires more engaged and diverse audiences to value and advocate for its work.
