Encompassing diverse media and materials—including plaster, tinfoil, video, printmaking, found objects and performance—Daphne Wright’s work is eerie and unsettling, suggestive and moving. Prayer Project, an installation of meditative video portraits, was installed to dramatic effect in the chapel at the National Trust Tyntesfield as part of her major solo exhibition, Emotional Archeology, organized by the Arnolfini in Bristol in 2016. Curator Josephine Lanyon writes that “These tranquil, often silent, films place religions on an equal footing in their stripped down, human form, showing faith as a part of daily life. We are invited to explore the notion of communion, both in the sense of its religious connotations (a communion with god) but also in the old sense of the word as communication, community, or dialogue with the self or with an ‘other’."
