Love The World Around You: New works in textile and clay exhibition with Aiden Canaday and Shoshana Kessler opens 25th March at 95 Gloucester Green.
The exhibition will consist of textile pieces, costumes, and soft sculptures, alongside ceramics pots and vases exposing the similitude and difference between the works of Shoshana Kessler and Aiden Canaday. Taking a deeper look at the functional “art object”, the show will ask the audience to reconsider notions of utility and community, subverting and redressing comforts of the domestic.
Shoshana Kessler’s pieces articulate folklore and myth, treading a line between the comfortable and the eerie. The larger soft sculptures trace the history and narrative of the ‘golem’, whilst the more recent weavings gesture towards and chronicle the multifaceted history of women and textiles, both in classical myth, contemporary art, and personal biography.
Aiden Canaday’s colourful and playful new earthenware vases and pots are made on a whim; political slogans and poetical phrases swimming amongst naked figures, bright underglazes, slips, and delicate hand marks shouting out to the world in the hope of community, asking: 'why can't we all just get along?
LAUNCH EVENT 6pm - 10pm Saturday 25th of March 2023 for LOVE THE WORLD AROUND YOU exhibition opening featuring live music and performances.
Fusion Arts Space 95 Gloucester Green, Oxford, OX1 2BU for the opening night.
