stoc at the British Ceramics Biennial
Stoke-on-Trent, ST4 1BU
28th September – 10th November 2013
10am – 5pm: Tuesday to Saturday
12pm – 5pm: Sunday
stoc is a poetic sequence and reader-responsive soundwork exploring post-industrial interruptive gardens in Stoke-on-Trent. It is now installed in the original Spode factory site as part of the British Ceramics Biennial‘s EXPLORE programme.
Part of the installation is formed of squat towers of crates carrying thousands of biscuit bone china leaves.
Every last one is handmade.
The BCB Launch Party saw hundreds of guests walk by the small dark mirrors hidden on work benches, on shelves, under a vent.
A cautious few caught sight of a flicker underneath the surface.
Those that stood and read long enough heard the voices, the percussive chatter of a hundred hands at work.
