Holmes à Court Gallery at Vasse Felix presents
The Art of Sound
9 June - 15 September 2013
The Art of Sound is a new collaborative project between the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia
and selected regional art galleries, which examines the intersections between sound and the visual arts.
NFSA curators compiled a ‘sound palette’ of 50 Australian recordings for the project. The palette is then
shared with the partner galleries, whose curators explore both the sounds of the palette and their own
collections to create unique exhibitions, linking sound recordings to selected artworks that they feel
complement each other. The Art of Sound exhibition at the Holmes à Court Gallery at Vasse Felix is just
such an exploration matching a selection of the NFSA palette of sounds with artworks from the Janet
Holmes à Court Collection. Did we make good choices? We invite you to come and see for yourselves.
JACOB OGDEN SMITH: POTTERY
THREE WAYS, FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE
For centuries we have looked into previous cultures and
made sense of those communities through the lens of
the pottery they left behind. In the twenty-first century,
pottery has been “usurped as a purveyor of historical record in
favour of mass media, and potters have become less a central
tenet of artefact making and more reclusive in their activities”,
according to Western Australian artist Jacob Ogden Smith.
He attempts to redress this situation by combining elements
of utility, beauty and humour in his diversified art practice to
examine this shift in the positioning and importance of pottery
in our society. Working with imagery from popular culture
and mass media, he has developed a series of sculptures that
attempts to reconcile the mass-media view of pottery with
its once physical and functional form. In previous exhibitions
he has combined his home brewing with his pottery and in
Pottery Three Ways he presents traditional ceramic techniques
alongside 3D computer modelling, digital printing and laser
scanning to create a series of objects that recontextualise the
craft of the potter for the twenty-first century.
