‘(The house) largely escaped his notice – there had been those stairs, there was a balcony, it was dark, there were many pictures, and these glass cases, it was a bit like a library….this made about the sum of (his) unrecorded perceptions.’
Malcolm Lowry, Strange Comfort Afforded By the Profession
Eva Masterman’s exhibition Strange Comfort presents a mise-en-scène of clay sculpture and photography, exposing tensions between public and private dialogues. Using autobiographical references to domestic childhood spaces, representational clay objects become characters in an interior narrative that is at once familiar yet disconcerting.
Her talk will use the title text, Strange Comfort Afforded by the Profession by Malcolm Lowry in relation to her own accompanying fictional text, to explore themes of clay, memory, artistic expression and the comfort we seek in other people’s disquiet.
