A Place in the World
2012 Solo Exhibition of Ceramic vessels by Jack Doherty curated by Sarah Frangleton
Jack Doherty presents a new body of ceramic interventions inspired and made in response to the place where the artist lives and works. The exhibition at Garden House explores ideas around home and function but not necessarily utility. The site-sensitive ceramic vessels and installations have been made in direct response to a home environment actively engaging in the architectural spaces where the work is to be encountered. No longer purely utilitarian, these abstract vessels do not conform to conventional use.
The interaction with the physical spaces in the building record, inform and transform the work whilst reflecting a wider abstract understanding of function and use in daily living.
