Simeon Barclay – As a Precursor to Folly Framed Postcard (A5, Portrait)


Part of British Art Show 9, Simeon Barclay’s ‘As a Precursor to Folly’ can be seen at Manchester Art Gallery. Barclay creates multi-dimensional installations – ensembles of film, neon signage, collage, sound and sculpture – that question how memory, images and objects situate and define us. Barclay’s work is rooted in his experiences growing up as part of a black working-class family in Huddersfield during the Thatcher years; discovering the glamour and inaccessibility of Vogue as a teenager; finding liberation in club culture; and the sixteen years he spent working in the industry before discovering visual art as a mode of expression.  

Postcards are A5 size and framed in a black-stained ash frame.

Frames are handmade by King and McGaw in Sussex using sustainably sourced wood and recycled packaging.
