Cathie Pilkington: Thirteen Blackbirds Look at a Man, Chapter Art, Cardiff

Artist Info

Taking its title from the poem ‘Thirteen Blackbirds Look at a Man’ by RS Thomas, this exhibition features four artists concerned with how modern urban existence has separated us from the natural world: socially, spiritually and culturally.

For this exhibition Pilkington is showing a collection of sculptural tableaux and other objects built into a wooden structure that acts like, and refers to, a domestic shelving system or room divider. The deliberate confusion of made and found objects is exacerbated by their presentation, which explores a space somewhere between storage and display.
