Celeste McEvoy: Forehead on the Glass
Celeste McEvoy is a ceramic artist based in Southeast London. Her hand-built sculptures reference ancient amphoras and relics from the past, adding experimental surface textures and shapes to historical forms. Her practice explores her personal relationship with social mobility and the desire for total assimilation.
Often presenting roadside debris and found objects alongside her ceramics as means of ethnographic collection, the artist’s work investigates themes of aspiration, hierarchy and the need for cultural capital. For GLOAM’s 2022–2023 exhibition programme, McEvoy aims to transform the gallery by carpeting the floor, covering the carpet in sprayed motifs. On top of this will sit car doors used as plinths to display McEvoy’s Ceramics. Overtop of the central display, a welded arch, mimicking decorative wrought iron work. From the arch will hang collected ephemera – car air fresheners and key rings.
Opening night - 15th July 6-9pm
