Claire Partington's figures inhabit an uncanny world, strange yet familiar to us, where silken Renaissance courtiers and goddesses in Primark leggings live out the fairy tales of Perrault and d'Aulnoy. A world in which the human body mutates, expands and contracts beyond its limits, allowing the outer self to reveal fundamental truths from within.

Partington's ceramic world is a darkly playful rewriting of art history, in which conventional iconography is upended - and with it, conventional power structures.
