Exhibition: 30 January – 28 March 2010
This multi-media installation by Sonia Boyce originated from a residency at Meriton School for Young Parents in Bristol, where it was shown at Spike October 2009. The exhibition explores universal ideas around the concept of care – the emotion we invest in others and in the making of works of art. In Bristol, Boyce produced a series of artworks from classroom discussions, which address fragmentary experience of longing, and raise questions about due care and contemporary life.
