Fragile? Ceramics Exhibition


Definitely worth a visit before it closes in early October is Fragile? at the National Museum Wales in Cardiff.

From the website: “Fragile? showcases the beauty and diversity of contemporary ceramic practice. The exhibition ranges from traditional vessels to works which explore the nature of ceramic as a material.

The exhibition brings together key works from the collection of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, including ceramic works by Richard Deacon and Felicity Aylieff, as well as featuring pieces from the archaeology, industry and botany collections.

Filling all six contemporary art galleries, the exhibition also includes significant loans from the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Derek Williams Trust.

Alongside these are three major innovative installations by artists who reassess the traditional experience of ceramics in a museum. Phoebe Cummings invites you into her imagined world of raw modelled clay, Clare Twomey challenges you to walk across and break a sea of bone china tiles and Keith Harrison requests that you help to break down his slip-filled speaker system by playing records through it.

Also on view are works by four Wales-based artists – Claire Curneen, Walter Keeler, Lowri Davies and Adam Buick – shown together with specially-commissioned films that delve into each maker’s creative process.”
