This is the first UK solo exhibition and a major new commission by Bristol-based artist Libita Clayton.

Libita Clayton develops performances, installations and discursive events, often working in partnership with DIY organisations, broadcasters and publishers.

Sampling from a range of references, including science fiction, music videos and set design, she responds to sites of historical trauma and rupture through research, dialogue and interventions, often calling into question accepted narratives and power structures.

Comprising a multi-channel sound work, large-scale sculpture and series of prints, Quantum Ghost maps Clayton’s journey through archives and territories related to her family history. This includes the personal archive of her father, a SWAPO (political party and former Namibian independence movement) supporter who grew up in Namibia but came to study mining engineering in Cornwall during the 1980s.
