Reconstruction of Memory

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

A continued interest in memory has led to new and experimental works in porcelain paperclay, paper, found ceramic shards and mixed media. The response is to ideas of memory, both personal and collective, with a focus on both its reconstruction and deconstruction. New works are concerned with a more scientific approach to remembering, be it neurological and surgical, false or implied, physical and emotional. The inclusion of found ceramic shards and the remaking [wrongly] of an object, comments on traditions of archaeology and the reconstruction of a vessel or other ceramic object to imply narrative and gain knowledge of lives lived. The ‘remaking’ of objects using found shards, paper and paperclay speak of the act of remembering itself, false memory and versions of truth. The combination of tradition and non-tradition, including a 3d ceramic printed vessel, comments on the role of new technologies within ceramics, and their potential for storytelling and drawing through clay.
