Julia Schuster Solo Exhibition – Artist-in-Residence 2017/18 Marlborough College Closing Show

About

Full Circle Half Knowledge is the culmination of Julia Schuster’s 10-month artist-residency at Marlborough College. The exhibition brings together new work that aligns body, object and nature.

Schuster’s primary medium is clay, which is combined with video, text and performance to form a meditative, personal and evolving practice. There was always the intention to bring the body and object together. During her Masters at the Royal College of Art in London, Schuster used gesture, touch and performance to introduce the body on clay. The sculptures became an extension of the body and an imprint of a forgotten gesture. Skin was the initiator and inhibitor. The residency at Marlborough College has brought nature into this equilibrium and shifts the paradigms of Schuster’s practice from within to outward. Thereby introducing lifecycles, natural rhythms, routines and historic rituals into her practice.

The exhibitionis rooted in Schuster’s time at Marlborough, a unique environment of rules and structure set inancient sites and sagas. It has brought forth primal questions. How does one exist in this world, how does one thrive? How do we learn, grow and love? How can we be whole? Where is home? How does one leave, move and start again?
