Fife Contemporary Art & Craft presents Causing Chaos. Curated by Scottish based artist Claire Barclay the exhibition brings together an international selection of ceramics, jewellery and small scale sculpture. Featured artists include Claire Barclay, Siobhan Hapaska, Johannes Nagel, Susanne Petzold, Shari Pierce, Jane Simpson, Richard Slee, Hans Stofer and Estela Saez Vilanova.
As a sculptor who makes objects from varied processes and materials, Claire Barclay has been interested for a long time in the complex relationship between thinking and making. For Causing Chaos she has selected work by makers from different artistic backgrounds, and different countries in order to show the inter-disciplinary crossovers and the common concerns which inspire their work. All the sculptural objects included, regardless of whether they would usually be classified as craft or visual art, seem at first to suggest an everyday function. Looked at more closely their use and meaning becomes more ambiguous. These subversive works should intrigue and provoke discussion.
