With an interdisciplinary practice, Claire Tindale utilises the media and format most appropriate to the ideas and concepts being expressed, with outcomes varying from 2D work through to video, installation and site-specific work.
With an interest in the ‘everyday’ and the ‘overlooked’, found objects or spaces, and their inherent resonance, often act as a catalyst for the generation of new work. Objects may be interpreted, manipulated or juxtaposed to investigate the potential of emerging narratives. By subtly disrupting the familiar in this way, new meaning is conveyed.
Recent projects have utilised the miniature, 1/12th scale model as a mechanism to explore and visualise contraction in connection with mental, physical, psychological or spatial concerns. This approach was used most recently in generating a site-responsive piece for a group exhibition in Manchester, Hankering for Classification.
Claire is presenting work as part of the Open House event on 12 – 18th June, to celebrate the launch of the Hannah Directory – an annual publication and website, profiling some of the most interesting and inspiring cultural projects in the north of England.
