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.
Baby’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.
