Clay Bodies @ Art Gallery of Nova Scotia

 
July 23, 2016 to December 4, 2016
Curator: Sandra Alfoldy

Clay Bodies I is the first of two exhibitions which explore
the complex relationship between clay and bodies, both figurative and
geographical. In this exhibition, clay and its relationship to the human
body is explored through a number of works. These pieces have been
chosen to represent the different ways in which the body can be
expressed through ceramics.

Examples by artists Teresa Bergen, Shary Boyle, Allison Britton,
Michael Flynn, Alma and Ernst Lorenzen, Walter Ostrom, Krystyna Sadowska
and Konrad Sadowski, and Brother Thomas point towards a deeper
understanding of the relationship between the medium of clay and the
body.
