Spirit of Utopia at Whitechapel Gallery
From 4 July – 5 September 2013, I took part in an exhibition as one of six potters featured in 'Soul Manufacturing Corporation' by Theaster Gates. It was part of a larger exhibition called 'The Spirit of Utopia' at Whitechapel Gallery, London. It involved whole days of continuously throwing porcelain eating and drinking vessels and making house bricks by hand in the traditional way. All of this as an installation with a specially set up pottery workshop located in the middle of the main gallery space. It was interesting, great fun and good practice to participate in Gates' comment on craft, labour/production, community and working conditions.
