MATERIAL EARTH: Myth, Material and Metamorphosis

10th February - 2nd April 2018

Messums Wiltshire

Place Farm, Court Street,

Tisbury, Wiltshire, SP3 6LW

A group exhibition dedicated to contemporary ceramic art, showing several of Jessica's glazed figurine works alongside other invited artists including Sam Bakewell, Grayson Perry and Malene Hartmann Rasmusse.

'Showcasing a range of artists who work with the mythology and stories of metamorphoses from Northern. Europe, this exhibition will be an ode to all those that are magical, fantastical and ever-changing. Material Earth II will draw on the animals and moral compasses of ancient Greek and Roman fables, the Scandinavian and Germanic fairytales of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson as well as the archaic Paganism of European cultures, inextricably bound to Messums' location so proximal to sites such as Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral'

Jerwood Visual Arts

Five new commissions by early-career applied artists Sam Bakewell, Marcin Rusak, Laura Youngson Coll, Juli Bolaños-Durman and Jessica Harrison brought about through the biennial Jerwood Makers Open. Each combines a high level of technical skill with imagination and intellectual adventure, constituting a fresh and exciting direction of each artist's work.

Jerwood Makers Open was established in 2010 to promote the significance of making and materials within the visual arts arena, seeking to support exceptional skill and imagination.

Jessica's work for the exhibition will be a new body of sculptural objects in porcelain that explores the notion of the collection - as an aspiration, a physical grouping and a framework that structures the viewer.
