Corinne Felgate’s new commissions at Hughenden Manor and The Burton Gallery

We recently caught up with Corinne Felgate when she participated, with Simon Periton, in the first of our artists-in-conversation series of events accompanying the exhibition ‘The Multiple Store @ Canary Wharf”.

Among her most recent projects, Corinne’s Man and Matter, a new large-scale outdoor commission for the National Trust, is on display at Hughenden Manor until the 31st of October. Click here for more information. and watch a video here.

Corinne has also presented a new commission at the Burton Gallery and Museum, using the ancient pigment Bideford Black and the exhibition, that features another seven artists, runs until 13th November 2015. A film trailer for the project is available to view here (and to which the screenshot above belongs, courtesy of Burton Gallery).

In addition to those commissions, The Ode Blower,  a new permanent sculpture for the Old Clare Hotel, Sydney, Australia is now on display. It’s a series of 10 site-specific poems written by the artist and played through a 1930’s candlestick telephone. 

 

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, also on display at the Lobby of One Canada Square,  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’]

Highlights from the London Art Fair

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.

Corinne Felgate’s ‘Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues’ and David Shrigley’s ‘Brass Tooth’ at the Artspace Pop Up Shop in Brooklyn

Two of The Multiple Store’s  recent editions, Corinne Felgate’s ‘Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues’ and David Shrigley’s  Brass Tooth are currently on display at The Invisible Dog, Brooklyn’s Pop Up Shop showcasing a works selected by Artspace whose mission is to make it easy for art collectors to discover and collect fine art from renowned artists, galleries, and cultural institutions worldwide

The Invisible Dog Center is located at  51 Bergen Street, Brooklyn, NY and the Artspace Pop Up runs until December 28th.

Corinne Felgate’s Baby’s got the Wedgwood Blues is The Multiple Store’s latest edition and 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. For more information and an interview with the artist, click here.

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.
