DAMP: The Harrison Collection - Art Collector

For this highly anticipated exhibition, Damp has produced a suite of ceramic based artworks that on close inspection are a patchwork of broken fragments. Kitsch, bric-a-brac, valuable and classical ceramics have been violently smashed, then each shard independently painted and the fragments painstakingly reconfigured. The result is a spectacular installation comprising a cultural and museological collage of both collective and individual voices. The exhibition, titled after an imaginary ceramics collector, poses a series of critical questions that address the core values of art, consumption and labour.
