Joana Vasconcelos returns to Jupiter Artland following her 2018 commissions to unveil a 9-metre ceramic pool.

About

Joana Vasconcelos (27 July – 29 September 2019) returns to unveil her highly anticipated new permanent commission for Jupiter Artland: Gateway, an intricately designed pool set within a landscaped formal garden. Gateway plays on the idea of swimming pools as sites fostering community; an experiential space that is inherently social, playful and shared. Shaped from over 11,500 hand-painted and glazed tiles crafted using traditional methods at a 100-year-old factory in Vasconcelos’ native Portugal, Gateway is a vast communal labour, and a celebration of the intricacies and social-political associations of the act of craftsmanship. Gateway is both intimate yet expansive, interweaving the dichotomies of publicness and privacy with the performance of bathing and art’s historical fixation with it. Visitors will be able to pre-book time slots to swim in the pool during August.
