Pots before words (2014)
Solo exhibition. Gallery II, University of Bradford. Curated by Amy Charlesworth
Pots before words engages with the life and work of British writer and archaeologist Jacquetta Hawkes and is the result of a period of research within the Jacquetta Hawkes Archive at the University of Bradford. This research is centred on Hawkes' study of prehistory, pottery and a humanistic approach to Archaeology. Pots before words is a series of new object-based works and drawings, examining the issues which arise when interpreting or translating from an incomplete or inaccurate record.
