all that remains

:: an exhibition of work by Mary-Clare Buckle

Dorset :: June and July 2012

Less than 100 years ago, Britain ruled over the largest Empire the world has ever known. The views of the British themselves have moved from a universal sense of pride in the Empire towards feelings of shame, indifference or denial.

Working primarily with textiles, Mary-Clare Buckle examines perception versus reality, clichés and quirks in a provocative, challenging and thought- provoking exploration of Britain today.

This will be the first time this exhibition has been shown in the UK. First shown as a solo show at the renowned Mojo Gallery in Dubai last year, the exhibition created a lot of media interest in the Gulf ... reflecting the fact that everyone seems to have an opinion about the British.
