Elisabetta Benassi: Empire

Saturday 13 July 2019Sunday 27 October 2019

Site-specific installation of terracotta bricks created by artist Elisabetta Benassi. Each brick is hand-crafted in the UK from clay ranging in colour from red to black and configured as a site-specific installation with the size, shape and appearance of each installation determined by its relationship to the setting; self-supporting structures assembled without mortar and in an intrinsically stable conformation. The work addresses the crux of the relationship between ancient spaces, archaeological heritage and the contemporary museum, taking the basic building unit, the Roman brick, and transforms it with new symbolic and aesthetic meaning.
