Claudia Comte

Sharp Sharp

Date: 04 Apr 2014 – 24 May 2013
Type: Exhibition
Location: David Dale Gallery

David Dale Gallery will present the first UK solo exhibition by Swiss artist Claudia Comte. Incorporating large-scale wall murals, wood-cuts, and sculptures produced while on residency in South Africa, Comte will present her characteristic form of irreverent and joyful referentiality. Employing a lightness of touch across references as wide as Minimalism to Disney, Comte produces an exemplar in art history pick ‘n’ mix. Forms become reformed with new meaning, and shapes lose all previous connotations in this most democratic use of signifiers. Creating a parallel of our normal interpretation, Comte involves us all in naïve complicity.

Additionally, David Dale Gallery will host Dan Miller’s The Cosmati Edition in the foyer space and present the gallery’s first permanent commission, Nicolas Party’s Carrot Stairs.       

Supported by Glasgow International and Pro Helvetia.
