Falling in Place was meant to be very much rooted in a place and time, and music was a part of that

Claire Morgan
makes things that look like they're falling, but aren't. Anyway in good words: She splendid with wires.

Claire Morgan was born in Belfast in 1980. She graduated from Northumbria University in 2003 with a first class honours degree in Sculpture and is now based in London. Claire has exhibited internationally, with solo and group shows in UK and Europe, and museum shows in US and Australia.

Claire won two awards in 2004 from the Royal British Society of Sculptors for Come Fly With Me, a work that involved painstakingly repetitive and precise processes. She has continued to explore this way of working, and the challenges presented by her chosen materials and techniques have become an integral part of her practice. Red or Dead, a sculpture made of thousands of cherries, caught the attention of the judges of the Premio Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, International Competition for Young Sculptors, Milan (2006) where Claire was awarded the first prize of Eur10,000. During this period Claire was also shortlisted or selected for a number of smaller awards.
