Alter is an exhibition of ground-breaking sculptural work by eight ceramic artists; Matthew Chambers, Ashraf Hanna, Akiko Hirai, Leah Jensen, Nicholas Lees, Frances Priest, Hannah Tounsend and Annie Turner

About

“Alter” is an exhibition of the work of eight UK based ceramic artists who, as vanguards of their field, are forging the way forward for a more defined cultural positioning of ceramic art. Using a combination of exceptionally honed technical skills, innate understanding of the material and boundless creativity, each artist produces work which glances back at the history of ceramics and forwards to the unending conceivable outcomes of its future.

The ceramic exhibition will be set in the beautifully ornate, Fitzrovia Chapel, once the chapel for patients, staff, and visitors of the former Middlesex Hospital, a building steeped in history, nestled in a quiet corner of Pearson Square amongst new buildings. In the same way old and new architecture merges on the outside, inside, these chosen artists merge their skills, both contemporary in aesthetic yet old school in their traditional approach. Each artist has evolved time-honoured processes to new and wondrous shapeshifting results.
