Artist Lauren Gault presents a new body of work at The Tetley. In this solo exhibition, Cithra, Gault reflects on the thresholds and close interdependencies between wildness and domestication, informed by her time in rural Northern Ireland.

Engaging with a range of fields such as contemporary agricultural practices, rewilding policies and archaeology, the exhibition will feature overflowing room installations, an ambient soundscape and eroded canine sculptures.

The exhibition is developed from her research residency and exhibition at Gasworks London in 2019, during which Gault researched the writings of Irish-born female explorer, inventor and self-educated scientist Martha Craig (1866-1950) – who is in fact a relative of the artist.

This research initiated a new body of work and experimentation with a diverse range of materials, including stained glass, stretched fabric, refracted light and horn fossil.

Against the contemporary backdrop of our increasing reliance on technology and the agricultural shifts between animal and machine, Gault invites us to contemplate questions around current and future ecological interdependencies, and how we might situate ourselves within a perceived threatening 'wild'.
