Ready to see some pretty awesome and bizarre porcelain art? Working with a wide variety of materials from porcelain and paint to marble and digital collage, Jessica Harrison‘s practice is based on a long-term exploration of the fluctuating relationship between the body and space/things around it.

How we handle, interpret and navigate materials, objects and space defines the shape of the body, and in turn, the shape of the body defines our interpretation of space/things and modern art around us.
With the acceleration of technological advancements in day-to-day life, definitions of the body are shifting and changing at an ever-increasing rate. Harrison’s porcelain art explores a re-imagining of these definitions, as part of coping mechanism, part learning strategy and part suggestion of an alternative shape to our perception of things.
Harrison’s practice on her contemporary art is hinged on the fundamental fallibility of the body and types of knowledge that can be generated through mistakes and inexperience. She has a particular interest in the fallibility of observation and the gap between the seen and the felt, the visual and the tactile.
This is the space in which her sculpture, and perhaps all of her porcelain art sculpture, is situated – as something that happens in-between and amongst the body and objects, a part of both, but neither fully one nor the other.
