Embodied Clay - Helen Felcey and Priska Falin

9th July - 13th of July, 2018

“Clay permeates our existence, appearing in our lives hundreds of times a day. It’s under our feet, on our dining tables and in our streets.

Clay carries meaning, memory and identity for us all. But, can we strip that back, to become focused on a primordial, bodily or instinctive response to clay in our modern world?

Join Priska Falin and Helen Felcey in engaging in playful methods of working with clay, considering ‘pre-cognative’ engagement and highlighting the relational values of the material. This process will uncover new understandings of self and clay through experimental projects and discussions provoked.
