An echo imprinted is a new solo exhibition from artist Robert Foster-Jones as part of the Test Space programme. The exhibition is curated by Elizabeth Brown.
Bringing together work in ceramics and sound, with results from experiments in photogrammetry software, An echo imprinted reflects on the cave as a point of origin, both culturally and spiritually.
The installation draws upon Foster-Jones’ recent experiences of becoming a father himself and the loss of his own father, to contemplate how we remember, commemorate, and how fleeting memories can leave an indelible mark, or become abstracted in time.
Robert Foster-Jones (b. 1989, Wegberg, Germany) is an artist based in Cambridgeshire and has been a studio artist at Wysing Arts Centre since 2017. His work explores the role of the artist as a conduit for revealing hidden forms of knowledge.
Foster-Jones is interested in different religious practices and spiritual beliefs, using influences from his research to create work in sculpture, installation, text and performance.
Foster-Jones has exhibited nationally and internationally, including recent exhibitions and projects:
Interesting Times in Venice, London Metropolitan University, London (2020), Steward Research Fellowship, awarded by The British Council and Wysing Arts Centre, Venice Biennale (2019), Home Residency, New York, USA (2019), Enshrine, The Crypt Gallery, London (2018), Solve et Coagula, Test Space: Spike Island, Bristol (2017), Supermarket Art Fair, Svarta Huset, Stockholm, Sweden (2016), Horizon, Roaming Room, London (2016) and Monument, FRAC Basse-Normandie, Caen, France (2014).
