Claire Morgan is an irish visual artist best known for her geometric 3-d nature installations. She creates surreal moments frozen in time blending living materials, taxidermy and literature, to challenge the definition of art, time, movement and stillness. Her surreal and fascinating universe is inhabited by botanical and zoological specimens suspended from the ceiling by threads.
