About the Exhibition

Opening 6pm Thursday 21 January 2021 

by Joanne Searle, ceramic artist and educator. Bookings essential, book here.

Facebook event available here.

Immerse is a multisensory exhibition by Erica Herbert, Abbey Jamieson and Chayla Ueckert-Smith. The exhibition encourages the audience to interact with and explore the works of the three artists with all of their senses. In a traditional exhibition space, visitors are asked not to touch the artworks, which can limit how the works are perceived and understood. Each work in this exhibition, either ceramic or textile, requires physical connection on behalf of the participant to be activated and fully experienced.

Jamieson invites visitors to sit and enjoy a cup of tea with her work Interconnect, asking visitors to take a moment to be mindful (bookings TBC). Herbert creates work centered around mental wellbeing and sensory exploration through her series Comfort Pods: a series of hand held textile objects designed with the intention for physical interaction. Ueckert-Smith explores sound capabilities of clay, and encourages participants to interact with her percussive clay instruments with curiosity.

This exhibition was postponed from 2020 due to Covid19
