Corinne Felgate’s works from her residency at Steelite international ceramics factory on show at Lamb Arts (1 Apr – 9 May)

As part of  “Repeat After Me”, a sculpture and installation show curated by Roya Sachs, Corinne Felgate is showing ceramic objects made while on her ‘Artist Into Industry’ residency at Steelite international ceramics factory, awarded to her in 2013. “Repeat After Me” is open to the public from 1st April to 9th May at Lamb Arts, 10 White Horse Street, Mayfair.

Corinne Felgate's Baby's Got the Wedgwood Blues on a mantelpieceBaby’s got the Wedgwood Blues, Corinne Felgate’s edition with The Multiple Store continues the artist’s fascination for the metamorphosis of the ceramics industry which started during her residency at Steelite International. She was later commissioned to create a pavilion which formed the centrepiece of the 2013 British Ceramics Biennial where the artist produced a quasi-shrine to industry and the process of production, rejection and selection.

Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues was launched in late 2014 and can be ordered on this website. Click here to read an interview with Felgate about this work and her multi-disciplinary practice.

‘Felgate’s powerful and fragile works are both an omen to the meticulous repetition of industry production processes, as well as a socio-political deconstruction of it. Slab – wedge – pub – throw ……fire are ceramic objects made on residency at Steelite international ceramics factory, in which the artist collaborated with employees at different stages of the production line. By forcing molding “mistakes” at different stages of the line, Felgate created a quasi-shrine to industry and the process of production, by re-establishing its basic principles and encouraging the viewer to rediscover it. ‘ [Lamb Arts’ Press Release for ‘Repeat After Me’]

The William Morris Family Album, the first major commission for the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, East London, is a Morris-inspired photographic exhibition by Yinka Shonibare MBE. The exhibition runs until the 7th of June.

ISLANDS by Eric Great-Rex, a new edition available here from The Multiple Store

First shown at the London Art Fair in January, we are pleased to now present here, Eric Great-RexIslands, a series of ceramic tiles where the artist plays with the idea of metaphorical islands and the enigmatic territory of emotions and feelings. The islands of Anger and Regret are the possible unspoken or unrecognised areas within masculinity that we might find difficult to visit. The islands of Luck and Desire are the islands we all might want to land and spend time on.

Islands, is currently available for purchase via this website. The price for the set of four is £1,650 or £475 for one (inc. VAT). To order click here.

About the origin of Islands the artist has written

Recently I watched a TV programme called ‘The Island’ hosted by the adventurer Bear Grylls. Thirteen British men were abandoned on an uninhabited Pacific island, and they had to fend for themselves with only the clothes they were wearing and some basic tools. As I watched this social experiment, to see if men can recapture their primeval instincts, I started to think that learning how to articulate the tricky and murky waters of established behaviours and attitudes could possibly be a more productive exploration of what it is to be a man. Maybe all the men could be equipped with an emotional compass to keep them moving in the right direction.

Eric Great-Rex is an artist based in London and is represented by the Silas Marder Gallery in Bridgehampton, New York. He is currently Senior Lecturer on the Professional Doctorate in Fine Art at the University of East London.

Recent Exhibitions include ’One Way or Another 2’ Smart Gallery, Aberdeen, Scotland. (2013), ‘Commemorative Objects’ University of East London Professional Doctorate (2013), ‘History of What’ and ‘The Big Show ‘ at the Silas Marder Gallery, Bridgehampton, New York (2012-11).

Opening on 23rd January at the Rook & Raven gallery, Bigger Than The Both of Us, a solo exhibition by acclaimed artist Corinne Felgate is comprised of two new major installations, Bigger than the Both of Us (MOMA) and Studio X Y Z, that draw on the artist’s on-going research into our collective relationship with the man-made environment, and how society’s perception of the manufacturing industry shapes our understanding of what it is to exist in the world today. To read the full press release, go to the Rook & Raven website.

Baby's got the Wedgwood Blues_MG_5675 (small)Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues, Corinne Felgate’s edition with The Multiple Store was launched in late 2014 and more information is available here. This edition is available for viewing and purchasing at Rook and Raven during the exhibition.

AR Hopwood False Memory Archive (thumbnail)

A.R. Hopwood has just produced a limited edition print, False Memory Archive: Damage caused to the walls of The Freud Museum London by previous art exhibitions (Emin Neon). This work is taken from a series of site-specific images made at The Freud Museum London for the artist’s recent national touring exhibition the False Memory Archive. The work is a photograph of damage caused to the walls of the Freud Museum by the hanging of a neon text work made by Tracey Emin for a previous exhibition at the museum.

Based upon scientific research that demonstrates how susceptible we are to false memories, The False Memory Archive evocatively reflected on the way we creatively reconstruct our sense of the past, while providing insight into the often humorous, obscure and uncomfortable things people have misremembered.

Kaleidoscope-5_1Yinka Shonibare MBE

KALEIDOSCOPE, 2014. Edition: 45

Cast brass, digitally printed cotton, lacquer, mirror, lens, glass, perspex, oil

Intended by the artist as both a ‘playful piece’ as well as a serious comment on male patriarchy, within this beautifully constructed kaleidoscope Shonibare has subverted the familiar image of Botticelli’s THE BIRTH OF VENUS by replacing the female nude with a photograph of a well-endowed naked male.

Corinne Felgate's Baby's Got the Wedgwood Blues on a mantelpieceCorinne Felgate

BABY’S GOT THE WEDGWOOD BLUES, 2014. Edition: 30

Flock on ceramic

This new edition draws on the heyday of Stoke-on-Trent’s iconic Wedgwood pottery, as well as its more recent demise, in an attempt to visualise a future potential for one of Britain’s last industrial heritage brands.

The flocked surface of the sculptures draws on Wedgwood’s lust for experimentation with surface colour and texture, and has been painstakingly matched to Wedgwood’s classic blues used on the Jasperware collections, which in turn endeavoured to emulate the tones and forms utilised on the roman artefacts he was so inspired by.

Terminal Blue: Tom Dale at Southampton’s John Hansard Gallery until the 7th of February

Two of Tom Dale’s major recent works, Terminal Blue and Infinity are currently on show as part of a solo exhibition at Southampton’s John Hansard Gallery until 7th of February. Terminal Blue is a giant banner of a dark-to-light-blue colour swatch being towed by a plane through the ether at certain times of day, as advertised in the local paper. Gallery-based Infinity Wall features images of the art space that are being constantly recorded, printed and shredded to make a nest of scrapped moments. Meanwhile, an ornate suburban conservatory has had its double glazing removed and been stuffed with books the artist bought in job lots from car boot sales. For more information go to the John Hansard Gallery website.

For The Multiple Store, Tom Dale has produced The Mighty Crowns, which takes its name from a set of rockets that illuminate the sky with crown-like formations; he has performed a simple substitution by casting them in bronze. It is a set of three rocket-like bronzes, available for purchase on this website.

‘Pushing materials and distorting industrial processes’ – Q&A with Artist Corinne Felgate

The Multiple Store has just launched a new edition ‘Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues’ by Corinne Felgate and the artist talks to us here about this edition, her art practice, her interest in British Industrial Heritage and her upcoming projects.

Corinne Felgate’s practice examines our relationship to luxury, power, failure, sexuality and industry through the exploration of everyday objects. Her work has been commissioned by numerous organisations including ArtsAdmin; Tate Modern, Maison de la Culture, Amiens; The National Gallery and The British Ceramics Biennial, and she has exhibited/performed with institutions including David Roberts Art Foundation (London) Oriel Sycharth (Wales), Palazzo Grassi (Italy) and Inhotim (Brazil).

Question – When The Multiple Store approached you about creating an edition, what led you to ‘Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues’?

Corinne Felgate – When Nick [Sharp, Director of The Multiple Store] and I first met, we talked a lot about the surreal-ness of the domestic collection, and the particularly British notion of creating the bookshelf or side board gallery. It occurred to me that The Multiple Store occupies this really interesting space between the commercial and the domestic, the gallery and the home. These were ideas that I really wanted to work with for the commission, and to me Wedgwood was the ultimate pioneer of collapsing the functional and the ornamental, which formed the starting point for the work to develop more organically.

Q – What do you find appealing about the concept of an edition vs. a unique artwork?

CF – As an artist who responds directly to the context or sites where the work will ultimately appear, I’m drawn to how the notion of the edition adds an extra layer of the meaning of the work. In the case of ‘Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues’, I wanted to play on Wedgwood’s re-creation of the Portland Vase (also produced in an edition size of 30) which was created after an obsessive two year period of experimentation. The vases were shown all over the world in specially created galleries at the back of ceramic showrooms and were highly covetable due to the edition size. I like how this is both paralleled and parodied through my edition and The Multiple Store. Also on a practical scale, my works tend to be large scale immersive installations these days, and I like the democracy of creating an equal number of smaller objects that can be owned by a number of collectors; it’s an artwork that then belongs to a collective of 30 people rather than just a single exclusive individual.

Q – How does this edition relate to your previous work?

CF – On a conceptual level my work looks at our cultural, & physiological relationship to making & industry in the digital age, how as individuals we have less and less to do with the fabrication of the material world and my belief that this lack of physical engagement affects, or shall we say distorts the way we understand it. Like most of Stoke-on-Trent’s heritage potteries, Wedgwood’s recent history has been tumultuous to say the least, with its future less certain than it ever has been, I really wanted to create a work that could mark this unique tipping point in time. The Wedgwood brand has always been synonymous with status and luxury, themes that many of my work explore and indeed often deconstruct. With ‘Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues’ the idea of luxury is undercut through the “shonky” finish of the objects, their imperfection draws our attention to the labour entailed in producing these familiar domestic items; they become more human because of it.

In a physical sense the edition continues my interest in pushing materials and distorting industrial processes, forcing materials like ceramic and flock together that are at once awkward and happy bedfellows. The fabrication of the edition is also very much in line with how I usually make my works, rekindling or reworking pre-industrial processes, and setting up low-fi production systems.

‘That little glimmer of joy […] a glorious, golden-ended penis kaleidoscope’ – what the people are saying about our Yinka Shonibare MBE edition

The public launch oF KALEIDOSCOPE  by Yinka Shonibare MBE took place at Multiplied Art Fair where the artist was in conversation with Iwona Blazwick, Director, Whitechapel Gallery  in an event that became one of the highlights of the fair according to Milena Kotseva writing for The Huffington Post.

We are at Miami Basel as part of the ArtMarkit Pop Up at the Mondrian Hotel

Two of our editions, Yinka Shonibare MBE’s KALEIDOSCOPE and David Shrigley’s BRASS TOOTH will be part of a Pop Up exhibit organised by ArtMarkit at the Mondrian Hotel during Miami Basel. ArtMarkit.com is an e-commerce launched in 2014 that aggregates, promotes and distributes artists’ products from around the world. ArtMarkit.com’s Pop Up has been chosen as one of the Miami Basel top picks by Doreen Deren, co-founder of New York-based Art Production Fund, on Harper’s Bazaar Art Basel Guide.

David Shrigley’s  Brass Tooth is macabre, comical and dysfunctional. By hugely exaggerating the size of the common molar, Shrigley plays on our fear of the dentist’s chair, but confounds us by making it in solid, heavy brass. This edition is available for acquisition on this website.

Kaleidoscope is a new edition by Yinka Shonibare MBE that playfully explores gender stereotypes and power relations: a kaleidoscope in the shape of a phallus, with the body beautifully decorated in the Dutch wax batik patterns the artist is known for, and the head made of highly polished brass. Click here for more information and to purchase this edition.

A video of Yinka Shonibare MBE in conversation with Iwona Blazwick, Director, Whitechapel Gallery filmed on 17 October 2014 where Kaleidoscope is also discussed is now available via this link.

PRESS RELEASE: The Multiple Store launches BABY’S GOT THE WEDGWOOD BLUES by Corinne Felgate

New limited edition multiple by

Corinne Felgate

BABY’S GOT THE WEDGWOOD BLUES, 2014. Edition: 30

Launch price: £750

Commissioned by The Multiple Store

Following recent news that (despite the uncertain future of the brand), the world-famous Wedgwood Collection has been ‘saved for the nation’ through a national appeal that raised £15m, Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues draws on the heyday of Stoke-on-Trent’s iconic Wedgwood pottery in an attempt to visualise a future potential for one of Britain’s last industrial heritage brands.

‘’ With Wedgwood’s future less certain than ever, I wanted to create a work that could mark this unique tipping point in time.  The Wedgwood brand has always been synonymous with status and luxury, themes that many of my works explore and indeed often deconstruct. With Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues the idea of luxury is undercut through the “shonky” finish of the objects, their deliberate imperfection draws our attention to the labour entailed in producing these familiar domestic items; they become more human because of it.’

The three ceramic forms are taken from Wedgwood’s vast body of vases and urns, which were inspired by the classical roman pots being excavated from all over Europe in the mid-1700’s, most notably the Portland vase that Josiah Wedgwood saw on display in London in 1786, later producing his own version in his trademark Jasperware.

The flocked surface of the sculptures draws on Wedgwood’s lust for experimentation with surface colour and texture, and has been painstakingly matched to Wedgwood’s classic blues used on the Jasperware collections, which in turn endeavoured to emulate the tones and forms utilised on the roman artefacts he was so inspired by.

Each piece is hand-produced by the artist in her studio and finished in an industrial flocking factory, the fabrication of the edition itself miming the pottery’s evolution from craft, to industry, to art.

The edition size also echoes that of Wedgwood’s Portland vase, which was also produced in a limited edition of 30.

See our interview with the artist

Corinne Felgate

Corinne Felgate’s practice examines our relationship to luxury, power, failure, sexuality and industry through the exploration of everyday objects. More recently her research has focussed specifically on our cultural, and physiological relationship to making & industry in the digital age and has involved the rekindling or reworking of pre-industrial processes.

Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues’ continues the artist’s fascination for the metamorphosis of the ceramics industry which started in 2013, when she was awarded the ‘Artists Into Industry’ residency for the 2013 British Ceramics Biennial at Steelite International ceramics factory in Stoke-on-Trent. She was later commissioned to create a pavilion which formed the centrepiece of the Biennial where the artist produced a quasi-shrine to industry and the process of production, rejection and selection.

Her work has been commissioned by numerous organisations including ArtsAdmin; Tate Modern, Maison de la Culture, Amiens; The National Gallery and The British Ceramics Biennial, and she has exhibited/performed with institutions including David Roberts Art Foundation (London) Oriel Sycharth (Wales), Palazzo Grassi (Italy) and Inhotim (Brazil).

About the Edition

Yinka ShonibareKALEIDOSCOPE by Yinka Shonibare MBE is a new limited edition of 45. Described by Yinka as ‘a piece that playfully explores gender stereotypes and power relations’, it is a kaleidoscope in the shape of a phallus, with the body beautifully decorated in the Dutch wax batik patterns Yinka is known for, and the head made of highly polished brass. Through the opening at the head of the phallus a distorted image of Sandro Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ can be seen. Botticelli’s original image depicted the birth of Venus, the goddess of the sea, standing on a shell. Subverting this familiar image, Yinka has replaced the female nude by a photograph of a well-endowed male. Click here for more information on this edition.

KALEIDOSCOPE by Yinka Shonibare MBE has been unveiled!

We are delighted to announce that our latest edition by YINKA SHONIBARE MBE was unveiled on October 2nd at the artist’s studio in Dalston, London. Created in an edition of only 45, KALEIDOSCOPE will have its public launch at MULTIPLIED, the editions fair that takes place at Christie’s South Kensington from the 17th to the 20th of October.

Yinka Shonibare's KaleidoscopeIf you are interested in acquiring this edition, note it is already available for purchase here.

About Kaleidoscope

Shaped as a phallus, KALEIDOSCOPE‘s body is beautifully decorated in the Dutch wax batik patterns the artist is known for, and the head is made of highly polished brass.

Through the opening at the head of the phallus a distorted image of Sandro Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ can be seen. Botticelli’s original image depicted the birth of Venus, the goddess of the sea, standing on a shell, the female ideal as the object of mythology and desire. Subverting this familiar image, Shonibare has replaced the female nude by a well-endowed photographed naked male.

KALEIDOSCOPE performs an act of reverse objectification, as the erect phallus and the male nude take the place historically occupied by the female body and therefore take it beyond the familiar realm of the male gaze. Click here to read the full press release.

PRESS RELEASE: The Multiple Store launches KALEIDOSCOPE by Yinka Shonibare MBE

New limited edition multiple by

Yinka Shonibare MBE

KALEIDOSCOPE, 2014. Edition: 45

Commissioned by The Multiple Store

Collectors Preview: 2 October 2014 at artist’s studio

Launch: MULTIPLIED Contemporary Art in Editions Fair (at Christie’s South Kensington): 17 October (Fair: 17-21 October)

Yinka Shonibare in conversation with Iwona Blazwick, Director of The Whitechapel Gallery: Friday 17 October, 4.30pm

About the edition

KALEIDOSCOPE is a new sculptural edition by Yinka Shonibare MBE that playfully explores gender stereotypes and power relations.

It is a kaleidoscope in the shape of a phallus, with the body beautifully decorated in the Dutch wax batik patterns the artist is known for, and the head made of highly polished brass.

Through the opening at the head of the phallus a distorted image of Sandro Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus‘ can be seen. Botticelli’s original image depicted the birth of Venus, the goddess of the sea, standing on a shell; as usual in paintings of this period, the female ideal was depicted as the object of mythology and desire. Subverting this familiar image, Shonibare has replaced the female nude by a well-endowed photographed naked male.

Kaleidoscope performs an act of reverse objectification, as the erect phallus and the male nude take the place historically occupied by the female body and therefore take it beyond the familiar realm of the male gaze.

This object can also be seen as a subversive take on 19th century Victoriana, and specifically the ‘peep show’ images of women viewed through devices such as a kaleidoscope.

As with Yinka Shonibare’s celebrated work on the Fourth Plinth, ‘Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle’, ‘Kaleidoscope’  reclaims an object from a familiar British tradition and subverts it through the bold use of batik patterns and the transformation of the shape into that of a phallus.

Yinka Shonibare MBE

Over the past decade, Shonibare has become widely known for his exploration of colonialism and post-colonialism within the contemporary context of globalisation. Shonibare’s work explores these issues, alongside those of race and class, through the media of painting, sculpture, photography and, more recently, film and performance. Using this wide range of media, Shonibare examines in particular the construction of identity and the tangled interrelationship between Africa and Europe, and their respective economic and political histories. Mixing Western art history and literature, he asks what constitutes our collective contemporary identity today. Having described himself as a ‘post-colonial hybrid’, Shonibare’s work questions the meaning of cultural and national definitions.

Yinka Shonibare was born in London and moved to Lagos, Nigeria at the age of three. He returned to London to study Fine Art, first at Byam Shaw College of Art (now Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design) and then at Goldsmiths College, where he received his MFA, graduating as part of the ‘Young British Artists’ generation. He was awarded an MBE in 2005.

In 2010, the artist’s sculpture ‘Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle’ was selected for the prestigious Fourth Plinth commission series in Trafalgar Square, and is now on permanent display at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.

In 2013, a major solo exhibition was held at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. In 2014, the artist’s work was the subject of the first contemporary art exhibition at The Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia, USA (‘Magic Ladders’).

The artist is represented in the UK by Stephen Friedman Gallery
