Coming soon: Kate MccGwire

Kate MccGwire is an internationally renowned British sculptor whose practice revolves around the uncanny. Employing natural materials and in particular, feathers, MccGwire creates arresting, otherworldly sculptures and site-specific works, often rendering the familiar strange and disturbing. This major monograph, featuring essays by Dr Catriona McAra and Jane Neal, presents works spanning MccGwire’s career, from the unsettling textile works of the turn of the millennium through to the fantastical site-specific installation and interventions of her solo exhibition in 2020 at Harewood House, Leeds.
