Clare Twomey (UK))

Twomey is a British ceramic artist who specialises in large-scale installations, sculpture and site-specific work. She has exhibited widely, including at the Tate, UK; Victoria and Albert Museum, UK; Crafts Council, UK; and  Museum of Modern Art Kyoto, Japan.


Clare's work is influenced by observations of human interaction and political behaviour and pursues her interest in space, architectural interventions and the gallery as destination. Her recent installation, 'Conscience / Conscience' at the Ceramic Biennale in Korea, consisted of 3000 hollow bone china tiles laid on the floor.  Guests were invited to walk into the gallery space, crushing the tiles underfoot as they moved about.


Twomey's installations reinvent and re-examine the way in which artists work in clay and, importantly, the way their work is presented in public environments. She subtly alters a gallery space, challenging our perceptions and the way we behave in those settings.
