    every single time this is something I play up to by firing at various temperatures and mixing glazes that are true gambles where I really do not know what the outcomes may be This gives each work an independence and freedom as they are different from the next C8 You ve talked before about the meditative and almost therapeutic qualities time in your studio allows you is it something that is heightened by the use of clay and the fact that the work you produce could be seen as a philosophical even somewhat existential cathartic response JW Yes An example of the cathartic approach what I do outside of what you say above which is accurate btw is in the titling of works such as Nice Proper nice Which came from a conversation about a new pair of trainers I heard someone in Rochdale having I try to use localised language to pin down works that may be visually universal almost as a trigger to remind myself and the audience where I come from and my approach to making in relation to this C8 The way you talk about your practice seems very romacticised and not at all in a twee or uncomfortable way it seems more of an endearing quality to both you and it Having been reading up on you in preparation for talking to you it also seems from the outside that your studio set up and project space at PLAZAPLAZA follows in a similarly romantic vein Was setting up an independent communal space where you could produce work at the same time as displaying other artists work and exchanging ideas something that you d envisioned once you d left art school and were left to your own devices Was there an effort on your part to try and continue that almost strangely unquantifiable alchemy that s present in a university workspace JW It s actually not a continuation of an academic feeling at all the great difference is the urgency the urgency to produce and communicate alongside existing as a person with a job that funds being an artist I think you have to consciously undertake the role of the professional artist that sounds really bureaucratic but in actuality it isn t what it means is that you generate enough direction conviction and urgency to start making opportunities for yourself a great way to do this is to start a project space This way you are making your own stuff and helping others make their stuff too this is a giant learning curve and also sociologically really important what I gained through PLAZAPLAZA is a knowledge of personality in relation to product various manifestations of this C8 Recently you ve also been involved in two projects Tokyo Drift curated by Millington Marriott with works by Jessica Mai Walker Luke Overein and Alfie Strong and a joint installation at Rise Projects alongside Nicolas Party Both projects see your work move away quite dramatically in the case of

    bear any relation to Jean Baudrillard s theory of simulacra and simulation If so how does simulacra within the show affect the reading of the work Is the platform a work or a prop KP Baudrillard s theory isn t a direct influence I like to think that objects aren t stable and fixed entities so that the platform for example can shift from being an everyday object to an artwork to a theatrical prop a stage for the audience s performance or it can be or something drawn from the fiction in the newspaper stories that accompany that show People engage with the environment of the work and I hope their imaginations and personal associations take them in directions beyond the immediacy of the things I ve arranged in the space Having said this I tend to think very practically about the use of objects in the first instance I mean this in the sense that I was concerned to guide people through the gallery to facilitate their journey so the objects include hand rails illuminated posters that provide light a map the platform divides the journey for those who want to sit on the benches to hear the announcements or read the newspaper and the ground level allows people to pass through in this way these things are literally props or supports And it might be relevant to say something about the lightboxes with semaphore signals These immediately appealed to me as sculptural forms which were found in the everyday where they re carefully balanced and silently communicating they might equally be experienced as props in a theatrical sense or as you follow the course of the exhibition you might engage with everything in a less superficial way than that because of they way the things actually function AR The Henry Moore Institute is an art gallery that specifically exhibits sculpture and you present writing and amplified sound as sculpture is it important to you that your practice is classified as such It s curious as your work is conceptual and immersive which are attributes of contemporary art practice but sculpture harks back to a more art historical context In contemporary times do you believe it is important to have work defined by the medium form as the distinctions between different art practises become more blurred KP I know there s much talk of the irrelevance of sculpture and a suggestion that we re in a post discipline era While I agree that being constrained by some outmoded sense of discipline is generally not a good thing for creative freedom I think that sculpture is a special case I say this because unlike other disciplines sculpture is not defined or delimited by any particular medium like paint for painting or photographs for photography In fact it s almost impossible to define and as it doesn t curtail an artist s choices or experiences I see it as an exception to the post discipline argument I talk about my

    studios and are made present through photography and film Louisa Lambri also presents photographic details of the buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright and Gerrit Rietveld The gallery is a spacious arena for the photographs and films that comprise the exhibition forming a linear progression around its walls The viewer encounters modelling as experiment as proposal and as copy and reconstruction and photo document as both detail and close up The works also reference an array of styles from vernacular architectures to modernist ideals and their postmodern re imagining Moving from one piece to the next brings architectural thought and experience into a state of play for the viewer whose encounter then becomes provisional in the same manner as the models statements Each reading becomes recognisable as the selection of one possibility among several The architect s models blown up in Demand s photographs for instance shape our interpretations of Lambri s detail shots of modernist buildings Both lack the verification of scale that a surrounding context might offer and in both instances the viewer encounters the work as a photographic object on the wall before considering its depicted content For a moment the corrugations of a sheet of cardboard equate in size with a wall of glass bricks and the viewer is left uncertain whether they are looking at a model or an actual building Casebere s studio photographs mark a shift in the modality of the model towards mimetic artifice and the model as re construction is fed through the lens of cinematic convention in Boberg s films which transform film stills into banal continuums of inaction Somewhere between the artifice and partiality of the models rendered in ready to hand materials some with the look of off the shelf kits and mediated through the dislocations of photographic documentation
