Pots before words (2014)
Gallery II, University of Bradford. A solo exhibition 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.
