Please join ACAD's Illingworth Kerr Gallery (IKG) as they present the MFA in Craft Media's Thesis Exhibition for artists Xavier Bernal Bladh and Robert Froese.
Xavier Bernal Bladh – Mirrors of Wonder
“Mirrors of wonder: the museum as craft medium”
Xavier's research articulates the museum as a craft medium by displaying the outcome of an artist in residency at an imaginary museum: the Museum of Mythical Paleontology. The artist’s works employ mythical creatures as metaphors to comment on complex contemporary issues such as illegal migration, cultural identity, or gender roles.
Robert Froese – Measured Composition
Measured Composition showcases elements of pottery production, wood platforms, paint, and gaffer’s tape to demonstrate essential connections between pottery and sculpture, utility and ritual, and spatial and musical composition.
