Naseem Darbey – “Between the Lines”
A fantastic new exhibition is opening at Cliffe Castle in Keighley on 16 April. If you’ve never seen Naseem Darbey’s work, this is a great time to discover it.
Through her sculptures, the remarkable story of Mary Louise Roosevelt Burke Butterfield is finally reunited to the Castle she never visited, and to the memory of the husband for whom she was “forever all for you.” Darbey’s stitched drawings are layered, complex and challenging works. Darbey creates narratives as solid and as viable as her sculptural techniques. Commissioned by Bradford Museum & Galleries, Darbey was given access to delve and investigate museum collections over her one-year residency.
Items on show are from the Social History and Furniture permanent collections of Bradford Museums and Galleries. Supported by Arts Council England and Renaissance Yorkshire.
The Exhibition open on Saturday 16 April 2011 and runs until Sunday, 26th June 2011. Entrance is free.
