Cause and Effect explores artists' responses to adversity. Craft has been used throughout history to give people a voice, offer a creative output in challenging times and rebuild communities, families and lives following a disaster.


 The contemporary artists selected to exhibit in Cause and Effect take inspiration from personal tragedies, international disasters and unfortunate events - of a more light hearted nature on occasion, such as Anna Barlow’s dropped ceramic ice creams.

The exhibition centres on a body of work by ceramicist Julian Stair from his recent exhibition at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima). Quietus: The vessel, death and the human body explored the containment of the human body after death. Featuring cinerary jars and life size sarcophagi, it was the culmination of ten years’ work. Quietus toured across the UK and assumed very different forms in the various venues. Cause and Effect will host a number of significant pieces by Stair including Reliquary for a Common Man: a single cinerary jar made with, and housing, the ashes of a close family member now in the permanent collection of the Crafts Council.
