VIENNA.- Francis Upritchard creates
installations in which human figures, painted in bright colours, inhabit
a world
replete with found objects and everyday items, modified to meet their
needs. The
inhabitants and their objects are shown on specially produced or found
pieces of
furniture. Paying as much attention to the furniture, to its careful
refurbishment as to the figures themselves, her work gives equal weight
to art,
craft, and display: the design and staging within the exhibition space
is an
integral part of the work. On view April 30 through June 20,
