A New MoonClaire Morgan (UK)

Originally commissioned by InSite Arts for Canterbury City Council with funding from the Arts Council, Millennium Commission and Land Securities.

Suspended above the River Wear, A New Moon created a striking focal point in the night sky, transforming the familiar on an industrial scale.

Hung from a crane, the giant ‘bulb’ flickered gently away, asking audiences to wonder if the installation was a ‘work in progress’.

Claire Morgan was born in Belfast and now lives in London. Since graduating in 2003, Claire has exhibited internationally, with solo exhibitions in the UK and Europe, and museum shows in US and Australia.

After showing sculptures at Palais de Tokyo and Fiac in 2009, Claire unveiled her first solo exhibition in France. Recent exhibitions of note include Dead Or Alive, (MAD, New York), on&on, (La Casa Encendida, Madrid), Monanism, (MONA, Tasmania), and Bestes, Bestiaux, et Bestioles, where a new large-scale sculpture was commissioned by Château D’Oiron, France.
