Spike Island

Ruth Claxton wins Arts Foundation Award

Big congratulations to artist Ruth Claxton who won the 2012 Arts Foundation Award for Sculpture last night.

Claxton spent time at Spike Island in 2007 through the Arts Council England: South West Residency. Her three months here formed part of the research phase in the development of a major body of work, Lands End. The exhibition opened at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, in April 2007 and was shown at Spike Island in early 2009.
