The acclaimed artist, Charlotte Hodes, will be exhibiting new work at Wolverhampton Art Gallery from Saturday, June 3 to Sunday, September 3.
The exhibition ‘Remember Me: Charlotte Hodes’ also includes an ambitious site specific, 12-metre long frieze commissioned especially for the Lichfield Street gallery.
City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, Councillor John Reynolds, said: “The gallery has always been a great champion of new art work and we are delighted that Charlotte has agreed to work with us on this exhibition.”
Hodes has established herself as a leading figure within contemporary art, bringing together both fine and decorative arts as evidenced by her critically acclaimed exhibition at the Wallace Collection (2007) and winning the Jerwood Drawing Prize (2006).
For this exhibition, her powerful new work will consist of 120 individual wall-mounted ceramic pieces, arranged to create a single image that combines elegant historic patterns with contemporary and digital imagery.
It will also include a collection of intricate papercuts as well as a table top installation of more than 350 plates, which demonstrate the artist’s incisive and challenging approach to the aesthetic potential of domestic objects, both past and present.
