Alongside Samara Scott’s installation in the park, the gallery is pleased to present the first solo presentation in a UK institution by London-based artist Sally Troughton. Rooted in notions of archaeological placemaking, Troughton’s work is manifested through sculpture, media and textile fabrics. Using natural, industrial and domestic materials, Troughton takes on how we position ourselves in a world that invariably shifts across digital and analogue zones.
Throughout the galleries Troughton has created installations that engage directly with the architecture of the building. Using a wide variety of materials, the works fluctuate between structure, image and object to explore connections between home, identity, modes of orientation and new technological perspectives.
About the artist
Sally Troughton’s practice spans ceramics, video, textiles and sculpture, but her use of time as a medium itself in both her research and craft define her practice. Taking on time and space in visceral ways, she negotiates the shifting terrain of how we locate ourselves within identity and place.
