Claire Morgan

Claire Morgan was born in Belfast. She attended University of Ulster and Northumbria University where she achieved a first class degree in Sculpture. She is now based in London.

Since graduating she has pursued a career solely as a visual artist. She has exhibited internationally, with solo shows, residencies and commissions across the UK, as well as group exhibitions in Europe. At an early stage she developed a strong interest in the organic, in natural processes, and in the bodily connotations of natural materials. This formed the basis for her practice as an artist creating sculptural installations and continues to influence her work at present.
In 2004 Claire was awarded the Royal British Society of Sculptors Annual Bursary and Roy Noakes Awards for Come Fly With Me, a work that involved painstakingly repetitive and precise processes. She has continued to explore this way of working, and the challenges presented by her chosen materials and techniques have become an important part of her practice.
In 2006 she was awarded first prize for Red or Dead in the Premio Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, International Competition for Young Sculptors, Milan (for artists under the age of 40), and in 2007 she was selected as one of the Courvoisier Future 500 (top 10 art and design), featured in The Observer.
In 2008, a new body of work entitled Periphery formed a major solo exhibition at the James Hockey and Foyer Galleries, UCA Farnham, and Gone With The Wind, a commission for the Great North Run Cultural Programme exhibited at the Laing Gallery, Newcastle, received great acclaim.
Claire is currently working on temporary and permanent commissions for public spaces, as well as installations for private collections. She is also preparing for international group and solo exhibitions that will include new installations and drawings.


Installations and drawings are in international private collections. Check her website.


Carsten Höller

Born 1961, Brussels, Belgium
Lives and works in Fasta, Sweden
Carsten Höller holds a doctorate in biology, and he uses his training as a scientist in his work as an artist, concentrating particularly on the nature of human relationships. Viewer participation is the key to all of Höller’s sculptures, but it is less an end in itself than a vehicle to informally test the artist’s theories concerning human perception and physiological reactions. Equal parts scientific experiment and sensual encounter, Höller’s works are most frequently devoted to his singular obsession—chemically analyzing the nature of human emotions. Solandra Greenhouse, a work created for this exhibition, is a garden filled the with the Solandra maxima vine, a plant that exudes pheromones capable of inducing amorous feelings. Coupled with strobe lighting intended to create a slight disorientation in the visitor, the experience of the Solandra Greenhouse is meant to recapitulate the physical effects of falling in love.
