As part of the documentation of the Made In Bow exhibition I created three artist films that played in the exhibition, profiling Mathew Weir, Lizzie Cannon and Felicity Hammond. In addition to this, I documented the various aspects of the Made In Bow project including the schools project, and walks and talks. During the research and planning stage of the Made In Bow project, Rosamond Murdoch, Nunnery Gallery Director, met with Hilary Young, Senior Curator for Ceramics and Glass at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Hilary also provided an essay for use in the exhibition pamphlet, and kindly agreed to be interviewed on camera and talk more in depth about Bow Porcelain, whilst showing some of the pieces in the vast collection at the V&A. Subjects covered in the interview included why Bow Porcelain is important to the developments in ceramics, who were the artists working in the factory, and the kinds of people who owned Bow Porcelain. In fact, there was so much fascinating information discussed, that it was decided there was enough to make a short film of just his interview, which you can watch below.
Made In Bow ran at the Nunnery Gallery from May 17th – July 25th, Tues – Sun, 10am-5pm, The Nunnery Gallery, 181 Bow Road, London, E3 2SJ
