Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific catalogue

ACCA is pleased to announce the publication of Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific, to accompany ACCA’s major exhibition of newly commissioned work by Melbourne-based, English-born artist Claire Lambe. Curated by ACCA’s Artistic Director, Max Delany and Curator, Annika Kristensen, Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific charges ACCA’s gallery spaces with a series of corporeal sculptures and dramatic installations that are at once uncanny, anarchic and full of life and libido.

As the most significant publication on Claire Lambe’s practice to date, the catalogue features a forward by Max Delany, a republished poem from 2011 by fellow artist Elizabeth Newman, a newly commissioned essay by author Emma Jane Unsworth, and Claire Lambe in conversation with Max Delany and Annika Kristensen, alongside an extensive colour documentation of Lambe’s work in progress, production stills, studio views, artist notes and reference materials.
