Verges

Verges / Clare Gallagher

The Golden Thread Gallery is delighted to present Verges, a solo exhibition by Clare Gallagher. The photographs in Verges examine the potential for everyday resistance through the growth and habits of weeds. Attending more closely to our ordinary surroundings and appreciating the familiar undermines the capitalist desire for commodity and spectacle, for the exotic and dramatic. 

These photographs aim to reclaim some of the freedom and creativity that weeds exhibit.  Observing and recording weeds offers a playful, life-affirming perspective that resists judgmental thinking about our everyday environment and invites us to experience it anew.
