Book now

Saturday 27 July, 10:30 – 11:30am

Artist Caroline Achaintre will talk about her art practice including the new work she has made for ESW’s Courtyard.

Achaintre is known for her sculptures in ceramic and metal as well as her drawings, prints, watercolours and fabric pieces often in the form of tufted rugs. Her work brings together abstraction, figuration, humour and materiality, with the individual sculptures often becoming ‘characters’ which evoke their own narrative connections.

Caroline Achaintre was born in France and raised in Germany, she now lives in London. She studied at Kunsthochschule in Halle/Saale, Germany and then at Chelsea College of Art & Design and Goldsmiths College, both London. Recent solo exhibitions include Permanent Wave, Belvedere 21, Vienna (2019); BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art Gateshead (2016); and Fantômas, De La Warr Pavilion (2018). Her work was included in British Art Show 8, Hayward Touring which was presented in Leeds, Edinburgh, Norwich and Southampton (2016-17).

Tickets: £2, book on Eventbrite
