Alex Valero: A Grey Mirror
21 July - 17 September

Creating a seamlessly synonymous investigation between material and mind, JamFactory Alumni, Alex Valero presents his first ever solo show.

Concerned with how the materials’ limitations can influence his freedom as a maker as much as the finished product, Valero provides an almost Lynch-esque landscape inviting the viewer into the depths of grey uncertainty; to doubt our existence as we think it. “A Grey Mirror attempts to capture the cloudy and contradictory nature of my responses to this question of mind. With this body of work, I am arguing for the primacy of process, in craft and the mind”.

One + Three: The Distracted Object
5 August - 1 October

In the third in this series of exhibitions, JamFactory invites one alumni to curate a show in which they select three other alumni to exhibit with. This year, Phil Hart, previous Creative Director of Ceramics (2006 - 2008) has been invited as guest curator.

This ruminative yet playful exhibition showcases Hart’s works, alongside fellow ceramicists Jo Crawford (1986 – 1987) Maria Parmenter (2006 – 2007), and Alison Smiles (2012) and collectively explores the abstraction and subversion of what could be perceived as the “standard’’ domesticated pottery object.
