New Frameworks for Interpreting Ceramic Objects

A Collaborative Project Between National Centre of Ceramics Studies, Wales and Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales in response to the exhibtion 'Fragile?':

Interpretation should never tell us what to see, think, or feel, it is simply a meeting of two worlds, the ethnography of an object set against that of a viewer. The Fragile? Exhibition; the largest ceramics exhibition ever hosted in Wales, offered a rich and diverse arena in which to explore the idea that we might uncover latent or hidden meaning behind objects, it is just a matter of finding the right language to speak with them.

This project contains the work of four artists, one researcher, one Keeper of Art and two Curators, each invited to apply the methodology of their practice to the interpretation of artefacts that intrigued them within the Fragile? Exhibition.

Sounding Objects

Sounding Elaine Sheldon's 'Atelier'
Bethan Frieze is one of the acoustic group ‘The Amigos’ and teaches in a multidisciplinary team with children from challenging backgrounds. Bethan's ability to respond intuitively to situations using the violin has enabled her to uncover the life beneath or within objects, extending their potential narrative and communication from considering its materiality, function and perceived sounds of production, as well as forging connections to memories of her encounters with similar values.
