at Acme Project Space
George Charman, Untitled, Royal Porcelain ceramic
Charman’s work explores modularity, abstraction and notions of dwelling relating to the perspectival and metaphysical properties of architectural space. His new body of sculptural works on display at the Acme Project Space are influenced by the repetitious detail and geometric qualities evident within the work of writer Alain Robbe-Grillet. The work playfully subverts the structural qualities and material makeup of objects in search of a slippage of association that releases the object from a specific space or situation.
Describing his work, George explains his attempt 'to invoke a state of latency that suspends the desire for instant recognition of things in favour of a more speculative examining of the properties and possibilities of objects'.
