Garry Barker: piscean promises - Workshop Press Gallery

Barker, Garry (2017) Garry Barker: piscean promises - Workshop Press Gallery. [Show/Exhibition]

Abstract

A solo exhibition of drawings and a ceramic installation. This solo exhibition focused on the development of allegorical narratives made in response to stories recently told to the artist of thousands of dead fish lining the English south coast seaside beaches due to pollution. This exhibition was used to test out audience reactions to a new body of work that was focused on responses to environmental damage caused by unthinking human activities and the idea that the Earth’s resources are things that are only there for humans to plunder. In particular a work was a response to reading around object orientated ontology and the possibilities a material turn could offer for an artist that wanted to reaffirm the value of making things.
