A Barbican Library FREE Foyer Exhibition

An example of a clay sculpture by Henrietta MacPhee

Henrietta MacPhee

Delving into unexpected realms, Henrietta MacPhee re-imagines London’s Barbican as being an ‘oasis’ in the city.

MacPhee's enigmatic clay sculptures create narratives that are based on real observation and anecdotes from the Barbican’s history, that reflect the magical and diverse life within its infamous walls.

MacPhee is an artist whose practice is centred in clay.  Blending the visual and tangible she creates entertaining illusions and a sense of complexity that traverses the border between 2D and 3D. Nature has made a shelter of the Barbican and MacPhee explores this intriguing theatre of life in her exhibition at the Barbican Library.  The image is: Peregrine speed, 2023, a painted and glazed ceramic, 29 x 39 x 23 cm.
