Landscape : Islands – an exploration in contemporary ceramics and sound

2016 saw the delivery of a joint project with ceramic artist Kay Aplin, exploring the landscape around us through ceramics and sound art collaborations. The project began with our joint residency in the Shetland Isles in August 2015, documented here in a blog on a-n, and continuing with an exhibition at Shetland Museum & Archives “In A Shetland Landscape”.

The project then continued with an exhibition of contemporary ceramics about landscape accompanied by performances in our new In Camera Gallery at The Ceramic House as part of the Brighton Festival. We then hosted two pairs of ceramic and sound artists in a month-long residency and exhibited the outcomes at Phoenix Brighton as part of Brighton Digital Festival.

The final stage of project showcased selected pieces of work at Guildhall Museum, Rochester and a special event at Dover Arts Development project space. A catalogue of the project with an accompanying CD “In A Shetland Landscape” (released by Green Field Recordings) is available to buy here.

We are grateful to our funders Arts Council England, Phoenix Brighton and all of our supporters from our crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
