Opening Hours: 11am-6pm

Over 25 years, Daphne Wright has pursued with relentless curiousity the ways in which materials can express our unspoken human preoccupations.

Working with clay, casting, sound, film and drawing, she explores intimate and domestic issues such as parenting, ageing, care and our complex relationship with animals.

This major solo exhibition, curated by Jo Lanyon, will present a number of key works spanning Wright’s career, considering the artist as an emotional archaeologist. 

National Trust Tyntesfield

A part of Emotional Archaeology will be presented at National Trust Tyntesfield. From 10 September – 20 November 2016, two installations by Daphne Wright will respond to the history of Tyntesfield. The chapel will house filmic portraits of individuals in intensely private moments of prayer and meditation. In contrast, cast and photographic works in the main house examine a history of breeding and lineage.
