5th July to 16th July 2017
Opening Night Wednesday 5th July, 6-8pm
At Saint Cloche, from 5 – 17 July, you’ll find Common Ground – where a fresh approach to curating will produce a show of ceramic art that owes a major debt to painting.
Exploring the nature of shared ideas and sources of inspiration, Common Ground presents the work of 3 ceramicists, each paired with a painter of their choice selected to collaborate on ideas based on common values and preoccupations.
In simple terms this collaboration might mean the ceramic artist will create a new range of forms, which will then be decorated by the painter. But how each pair of artists chooses to work together is up to them. What we anticipate is that, in exploring the common ground between them the artists will develop ideas that push the boundaries of their established art practices, and we’re looking forward to seeing some surprising and exciting new artworks and approaches as a result.
As all the artists selected for Common Ground are influenced and inspired by the natural world, the environment will form a unifying theme for the show, creating an exhibition that will have an element of ‘green’ all round.
Given that nature will be at the heart of everything, we are excited to present a range of interesting dialogues developed between the works, and a cohesive show brimming with comparisons and contrasts, and alive with new ideas.
