Displaying a work where and how?!
It has been discussed I will take up a space in The New School House Gallery, which is a beautiful ceramic art based gallery in York, North Yorkshire. I have a good sized space but without knowing exactly what the work should look like once complete It’s difficult to decide whether it will work well there or not.
The issue now is HOW?!
Possibly displayed in a cabinet quite similar to the way Marcel Broodthaers has exhibited his works previously ‘squished in together’ like below.
Striving For Perfection
The above image is going to be published on postcards which each artist will have for their piece in the Create 13 exhibition.
They will be double sided with my artist statement for the piece on the back alongside the URL to my artist website.
To ensure a piece is given a context to be received well by the audience a title is always a good idea to have attached to the piece.
A lot of debate and exhausting every option checking connotations won’t clash I found the ‘perfect’ title!!
After trying and trying to produce a resin cup and saucer that is perfect enough to be added to a collection of perfect items I have decided on ‘Striving For Perfection’
As I have strived to create that one piece.
Alongside the title an artist statement is to be shown
Over view of thoughts….
Continuing a theme of previous works through collection and the tea cups.
I am likely to get lost in the making of the objects rather than the concepts and contexts to the work. Look at material use and material values which are brought when using them.
Look at using wax like with previous works..
Thinking about scale of the piece and a mode of presentation for the work.
