Ornamental Walk at Collect 2014, Saatchi Gallery, London

AllHeidi HarringtonComment

Ornamental Walk is an installation of ceramic pieces describing place, experience, and material making. The viewer to moves along groups of work - screen printed plates and bowls - which describe a place in detail and the cycles of nature encountered. Freshly cut wood decays, clarity becoming lost, and leaves are taken by the wind and time. Glimpses of this process are captured in the just stilled surfaces of the objects, images emerging and disintegrating. The piece as a whole aims to describe both place and the materiality of making these representations.
