Jan 25 - Apr 11, 2020
With guest artists: Anna Barham, Kate Cooper, Lindiwe Matshikiza, Harold Offeh, Flora Parrott, Luc Pheles, Alberta Whittle.
 
'In the Castle of My Skin' is a solo show of new commissions and existing work by Sonia Boyce, with work by seven other artists co-curated with Boyce. The exhibition is built through improvisation techniques and riffs on ways of playing in urban space. It takes shape across a large new sculptural display system that houses works by Boyce and artists including Kate Cooper, Harold Offeh, Flora Parrott and Alberta Whittle alongside selected works from the Middlesbrough Collection. The sculpture is based on the crystalline form of the mineral pyrite, known as Fool’s Gold, and is clad in wallpapers made by Boyce since the early 1990s.
