Rebellious Ceramics - Artist Talk

Dundee Ceramics Workshop (Tin Roof)

Deadline: 27 May 2017 at 12:00

Rebellious Ceramics
Saturday 27th May, 2pm

Sally Hackett presents a talk on the raucous, childish and crude in ceramics. Exploring the joy of experimentation and the explosions that come with it. Happy accidents, bumpy surfaces “bad” drawings and breaking the rules of a traditional medium.

Working on a broad range of projects from Glasgow shrine’s to Hieronymous Bosch recreations, Sally Hackett is a visual artist creating works that interrogate the habitual behavior of our modern society. Through sculpture, drawing and installation themes around hierarchies, iconography and the human condition are explored. With a belief in art as the people’s common ground, Sally explores participatory projects within a socially engaged practice within communities and her own studio. By highlighting the curious and absurd in everyday life, the artworks challenge common beliefs, from historical masterpieces to reality TV, always retaining an element of humour.

Sally will be hosting a follow up workshop 'Make Your Own Human' on 24th June - more details can be found at
