Manchester Art Fair 2024


Clare Phelan

Stand: 618

Working primarily in the field of printmaking, Clare has developed an interest in collecting and reworking mass produced redundant artefacts.

Influenced by the post industrial landscapes of Northern England where she has lived all her life, her current practice utilises nineteenth and twentieth century   coding technology artefacts such as textile jacquards, music box discs and IBM punch cards.

Clare explores these artefacts as carriers of narrative, the paper creases and the rusty damaged metal tell stories of obsolete technologies. They hold memories of their past, of their making and function. They also evoke memories of those who made and used them.
