Description

An investigation into the connection between objects and images, drawing on the histories of craft and art.

Eminent Western Australian ceramist Bernard Kerr’s fourth solo show explores how ceramic objects are displayed, represented, perceived, and used in Western culture. This exhibition aims to shape conversations around the puzzling phenomenological relationship between our interactions with, and perceptions of, objects and images. In this case, between handcrafted ceramic objects and still life paintings and photographs.

Juxtaposing functional ceramic and trompe l’oeil objects with representational artworks, Coincident examines how functional ceramic objects, bounded by domesticity and ideas about craft, are camouflaged by our privileging of images and take on different meanings when presented as sculptural groups or images.
