JERWOOD MAKERS OPEN


16th September - 5th November 2017

New Brewery Arts

Brewery Court, Cirencester

Jerwood Visual Arts

 

 

Five new commissions by early-career applied artists Sam Bakewell, Marcin Rusak, Laura Youngson Coll, Juli Bolaños-Durman and Jessica Harrison brought about through the biennial Jerwood Makers Open. Each combines a high level of technical skill with imagination and intellectual adventure, constituting a fresh and exciting direction of each artist's work.

Jerwood Makers Open was established in 2010 to promote the significance of making and materials within the visual arts arena, seeking to support exceptional skill and imagination.

Jessica's work for the exhibition will be a new body of sculptural objects in porcelain that explores the notion of the collection - as an aspiration, a physical grouping and a framework that structures the viewer.

Un Bal Masqué. XVIIE Siècle et art Contemporain 

 

9th June - 26th November 2017

Le Chateau de Nyon

Nyon

Switzerland

 


'Everyday objects, toiletries, coffee makers, silver candlesticks, silk clothes and porcelain, set the scene for this exhibition. As anchors, these eighteenth-century objects - admittedly luxurious and reserved for an elite - enable the viewer to establish links between a contemporary artistic production and objects made more than two centuries ago.
In addition to the clothing of Gianni Versace and Vivenne Westwood of the 1990s, this exhibition features works by six contemporary artists all born in the second half of the 20th century. These artists, who consciously recapture the eighteenth century, endeavor to replay it in various ways, be it sculpture, photography, video or painting. Thus, reflecting on the past and on the present, their works allow us to approach the XVIIIth century from a new angle and illuminate in an original way the collections of the Château de Nyon.'
