A solo exhibition of new sculptural works made in response to Leicestershire Museums Collections

‘Copy Out a New Shoot’ is a solo exhibition of new works made in response to objects in Leicestershire Museums Collections.

Taking botanical artefacts from the collection as starting points for thinking about ideas of production and reproduction, I made works in ceramic, wax, plastics, image and audio. Honing in on artefacts designed to teach, describe or demonstrate, the works in the exhibition focus on how to differentiate between one thing and another, and how to know physical things.

Listen to ‘Store Guide‘, an artwork that borrows the exhibition guide format, with tracks to be activated in front of works across the space.
