Kyra Clegg

Artist, Film-maker

Approved: 16.08.2006

My practice includes sculpture, mixed media installations, video and collage. I am particularly interested and engaged by the techniques of collage and montage and the way in which different mediums and ideas can be disassembled and reconnected to discover new relationships.  Fragments reflect a piecemeal perception of reality but their reconstruction holds the possibility of finding new and deeper connections.                                                               My work deals with landscape, habitation and concepts of time and memory and explores how inner perceptions create patterns in the external world.
