Two For Joy

2024, Two For Joy, San Mei Gallery, London

Two For Joy turns to joy, happiness and pleasure as artistic modes of possibility in need of reclamation. The works featured in this exhibition look to art that exceeds mere utility, indulging our impulses and extending our capacities for feeling, sensuality, and desire. Joy has at least as many meanings as there are people, from simple pleasures to the transgression of jouissance and the radical alegropolitics of collective joy. To attend to moments of happiness and pleasure, is to realise what takes us outside of ourselves, to engage in the abundant materiality of the world around us.

These Cera candlesticks are an ongoing investigation into glaze and form. They are inspired in part by meteorites, alchemy, and science fiction; with both candles and meteorites being considered sacred by various cultures and peoples throughout history.
