RELICS OF THE MIND
17 September – 25 November 2010
In her forthcoming exhibition, sculptor, Katharine Dowson, takes us on a psychological journey by constructing familiar forms that evoke childhood memories, using unexpected materials that alter their meaning or significance. Relics of the Mind is based on the concepts of holding on and letting go. The references are rich, and both personal experiences and social rituals play an important part in the making of the artworks. With a profound take on ownership and the sharing of property, Dowson reflects on what happens when we hold onto our identity and then let go by ‘passing on’ our dearest possessions.
