ACCA is excited to present Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific, a major exhibition of newly commissioned work, the artist’s most ambitious project to date. Borrowing from the conventions of television, cinema and theatre, Claire Lambe brings sculptural objects and props, performance and images into free association – provoking existential questions related to identity, sexuality and vulnerability, and dramatising the conflict between thinking and feeling, knowledge and experience, rationality and desire.

Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific conjures an intoxicating brew of contexts and influences – from Jacobean architecture and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales to British television and European cinema of the 1970s, and from art history, philosophy and Freudian psychoanalysis to popular cultural references and ritualistic practices. Working with sculpture, photography, biography and theatrical mise-en scène, Lambe creates intimate and intense psychological spaces in an ambitious artistic attempt to describe the human condition in its cruel reality and horrifying glory.
