Oliver Clegg at The Freud Museum, London
Oliver Clegg MA C&G at The Freud Museum
Oliver Clegg, who graduated from the MA at City & Guilds of London Art School three years ago, will exhibit alongside Paul McCarthy, Rachel Whiteread, Tom Friedman, Damien Hirst, Jake and Dinos Chapman and another City and Guilds alumnus, Ali Mackie, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rejkjavik.
He currently has a one person show at the Freud Museum in London until 23 November 2008 (http://www.freud.org.uk/clegg.htm).
This show brings together painting, etching, carving, lettering, embroidery, installation and a mind of inquiry that has grappled with the extraordinary place, and inhabitant of the Museum, Freud himself, who when exiled from the Nazis lived at 20 Maresfield Gardens in North London.
Playful and poignant, Oliver Clegg's new work is testimony to the breadth of possibility when looking into and out of the objects and words that Freud lived with and leaves for us to ponder.
