EXHIBITION AT SALISBURY ARTS CENTRE
Homegrown exhibition ‘Heroic in the Everyday’ featuring Salisbury Arts Centre’s talent is nearly set up just a few finishing touches before the PV on Friday 5.July at 5.30.
I am particularly excited and scared about “Heeled and Knuckled” dance piece which is a collaboration between myself, with the great help of some of my youth pottery participants, and Carrie Madgwick and Jigsaw and Seesaw dance companies. This piece combines the disciplines of contemporary dance, ceramics installation and film in order to bring about a piece which merges the concepts of a time specific work with that of a permanent artefact.
Some of the dance will be performed on 5 July over an area of clay capturing each imprint of the dance as imparted into the surface of the pliable material. Clay here acts as an uncompromising chronicler. Reminiscent of the anonymity of footprints left on a muddy byway, perhaps by pilgrims and ramblers. This clay will then be left to dry and fired only to be reassembled again on 31 July as a piece of ceramic and film floor installation. Thank you to Tom Sneddon and Filmakers for making the film and Ellie who mixed the music.
My next firing is scheduled for 10 July the kiln will be unpacked for Art in Action on the 13th. Students can come to collect work on the 13 July between 11 and 12 am.
