Philippa Lawrence - Solo Show
MetadataShow full item record
This body of research continues my investigation into the application of a range of processes to found objects, with a view to creating associations between process and object, and between different objects. The significance of these associations is that they bring the objects’ categories, histories, and material qualities to light, and let us see them 'speaking to' the properties of other objects in ways which would not be possible if the objects were left unaltered or in isolation. In my research, the properties of an object which come to light through working with it on one piece often become active in my use of the same kind of object in another piece. This exhibition was my first one-person show. Its research significance lay in the fact that I was able for the first time to make these cross-work associations prominent. For example, the resonance between the curve and surface of the fly-ridden mirror in 'Blood Pool', and the curve and the glass of the self-made light bulb in 'A Light Death', with a pool of dead flies in the bowl of the bulb. As a result, the bringing to light of the properties of objects (achieved in individual works) was allowed to occur throughout the exhibition as a whole, with different relations being created dependent upon the viewer’s movement through the show.
