RENEE SO : ANCIENT AND MODERN
Sep 28, 2019 - Jan 12, 2020
An exhibition of new ceramic and textile works by Renee So, created during a residency at West Dean College.
 
Renee So’s exhibition is comprised of an entirely new body of work. It includes hand-woven textiles, furniture, and ceramic works that refer to representations of the female figure in prehistoric cultures. A tiled mural is based on the Egyptian goddess of the night, Nut, her body bent in a yoga-like pose in order to provide shelter to the earth; other ceramic sculptures are reminiscent of pre-Columbian figurines of Venus. These continue So’s on-going investigation into ceramic vessels that people across the world have made to drink and eat out of for thousands of years.

MIKHAIL KARIKIS : I HEAR YOU
Sep 28, 2019 - Jan 19, 2020
This autumn sees the launch of a major new commission by Mikhail Karikis that explores the relationship between listening and care. Karikis’ new moving image installation has developed with Project Art Works, an artist-led organisation in Hastings that collaborates with people with complex support needs. Focusing on interactions between carers and non-verbal people who use Project Art Works’ studio spaces, Karikis invites us to pay attention to the sensitive tuning-in of support workers, artists and family members to those they support – a precarious role that is often invisible, misunderstood and undervalued by society.
