Produced on the occasion of Cathy Wilkes’ 2015 exhibition at the Tate Liverpool, the largest and most comprehensive display of work to date, bringing together more than a decade of the artist’s acclaimed work, including several of her large-scale sculptural installations alongside paintings, works on paper and archive materials.
Best known for her imaginary environments which recall poetic visions, her installations evoke places of loss or transformation. Her work is occupied by beings, often of unspecified gender: infants, elders and animals. It includes collections of objects and treasured ingredients accumulated from daily life, for example baking parchments, cloths, towels, cups and plates and biscuits.
