Nicholas Arroyave-Portela presents two major ceramic works in this exhibition. Todo Sobre Mi Padre (‘All about my Father’) is a rhythmic and contemplative series of wall panels, a ‘personal journey looking at all aspects of my identity’.
Consciousness is a new work produced specially for the exhibition and will be installed in mid February. This piece comprises a wall-mounted installation of 260 thrown vessels with the word Consciousness cut into a middle section. The work refers to the Mayan Long Count Calendar which is said to end around 21 December 2012. The installation concerns the idea of a cycle of time through a personal perspective and it also suggests the notion of a universal cycle in which world events are played out.
