Erica Eyres

Erica Eyres lives and works in Glasgow. Through videos, drawings, and sculptures, Eyres’ work explores narrative fallacies that complicate the viewer’s understanding of the author’s subjective truth and problematizes the notion of the autobiographical.  Eyres’ sculptures feature ceramic wigs, balloons, and gloves that are rendered flat, as though cast aside. Despite their obvious reference to costumes and disguise, the wigs and gloves become un-wearable in their concrete copies. These clay versions suggest a kind of relief sculpture that is figurative, yet deflated and absent of human form. Recent shows include Too Shy To Party at Plaza Plaza, London (2021); A Bit More Exciting at OTP Copenhagen (2021); and Fascinated Witness at Korai Projects, Nicosia, Cyprus (2019).
