Rachel Kneebone & others @ Hayward Gallery

26 October 2022 - 8 January 2023

The exhibition, Strange Clay: Ceramic in Contemporary Art, examines the plasticity and the possibilities of ceramics.  Artworks on show encompass fantastical creatures and uncanny representations of the everyday, as well as ranging from small abstract works to large-scale installations that take the medium beyond the kiln.

Strange Clay explores the possibilities of thinking through making.  Artworks vary in scale, finish and technique, and address topics that range from architecture to social justice, the body, the domestic and the organic.   It contributes to the broadening dialogue between art and craft, and provides a closer look at this tactile medium.

The exhibition features works by Aaron Angell, Salvatore Arancio, Leilah Babirye, Jonathan Baldock, Lubna Chowdhary, Edmund de Waal, Emma Hart, Liu Jianhua, Rachel Kneebone, Serena Korda, Klara Kristalova, Beate Kuhn, Takuro Kuwata, Lindsey Mendick, Ron Nagle, Magdalene Odundo, Woody De Othello, Grayson Perry, Shahpour Pouyan, Ken Price, Brie Ruais, Betty Woodman and David Zink Yi.
