Judith Carlton Director, CGP London and Jonathan Baldock discuss the influences and processes that have informed Baldock's exhibition and work.

About

For this exhibition, Jonathan Baldock creates an installation of new work conceived during his Freelands Lomax Ceramics Fellowship at Camden Arts Centre in 2017-18. Comprising of precariously stacked ceramic columns, these new works are inspired by the discovery, in 1974, of more than a thousand perfectly preserved cuneiform-inscribed clay tablets, ca. 2500 BC, in the ancient city of Ebia, Syria. This exhibition pays homage to these extraordinary artefacts, developing an alternative history of clay as a tool of communication and a carrier of language that defiantly stands the test of time.

Judith Carlton is Director at CGP London, an artist-led non-profit contemporary art gallery situated across two contrasting venues in the heart of Southwark Park (Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and Registered Charity).
Previously Judith was the Assistant Director at Matt’s Gallery, London and Gallery Manager at Cubitt Gallery & Studios, London. She has also held positions at the Serpentine Galleries, London and The Hatton Gallery, Newcastle. Judith is a Trustee of The Workplace Foundation and visiting lecturer at art colleges across the UK. Over the years Judith has produced major commissions by artists including Susan Hiller, Jonathan Baldock, Mike Nelson, Emma Hart, Peter Liversidge and Marcia Farquhar. 
CGP London was founded in 1983 by the Bermondsey Artists’ Group, and now encompasses a modernist exhibition space and a poured-concrete, Grade II listed former church, built in 1911.
