Keith Harrison is Ceramics Resident at the V&A from October 2012 to March 2013

The V&A is delighted that ceramics artist Keith Harrison is Ceramics
Resident at the V&A from October 2012 to March 2013. Harrison is
interested in the opportunities that clay offers in its different
states; as a liquid, plastic and solid and, ultimately, the potential
for the direct physical transformation of clay from a raw state
utilising industrial and domestic electrical systems in a series of
time-based public experiments.

In Harrison’s work, clay is treated generally inappropriately and
variously applied onto an electrical host form. The resulting works are
wilfully idealistic and impractical attempts to permanently change, in
full or in part, the properties of clay or in combination with other raw
materials produce a temporary sensory alteration such as the generation
of sound or an aroma to fill a space.
