Exhibition Reminder


Claudia Borgna ARBS is exhibiting at the tenth annual exhibition of international sculpture at the University of Leicester, UK, entitled ‘A Decade of Sculpture in the Garden’.

This highly popular exhibition, which takes place in the idyllic setting of the University’s Botanic Garden, will run until Sunday 30th October 2011.

Claudia Borgna whose site-specific installation ‘Weep me to Hollow Tears’ is on display, studied literature at Genoa University and Fine Art at London Metropolitan University. Claudia travels worldwide with her medium: recycled plastic bags. She sets them in ephemeral installations to interact with the surrounding environments. The creation of new artificial landscapes is her means to attempt to understand the ‘nature’ of our world.

Work by more than sixty sculptors will be on display at ‘A Decade of Sculpture in the Garden, from the USA, Germany, Iceland, Italy, France and the UK, with a number of sculptures by members of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
