The Vegetable Store

Date: 08 Apr 2016 – 25 Apr 2016
Type: Exhibition

The exhibition features ceramic works, video and drawings, and develops a dysfunctional fruit and vegetable shop within the front gallery space of Fireworks Pottery.

In contradiction to the colourful abundance associated with modern produce displays, many of the objects in this display appear wrinkled, mouldy and past their sell-by date. Clay versions of paper bags and boxes also feature prominently on the shelves. Contextualised by the video and drawings, the installation satirises the fetishised feel-good approach that has become ubiquitous in contemporary grocery chains.

Elements of the pottery studio, such as potter’s wheels, clay and tools, remain within the installation, alluding to each vegetable’s creation and thereby forming a joke around the notion of locally-sourced natural foods.
