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.
Baby’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.
‘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’]
