Abstract

Work titled, 'Celebrity Obsession' selected for the 12th Westerwaldpreis Keramik Europas, competition and exhibition at the Keramik Museum, Westerwald, Germany. 223 artists were selected for the exhibition, 15 from the UK.

Celebrity Obsession looks at notions involving the collector and the object. In this work the cast figures used are devoid of colour or finish but maintain the flash marks from the various moulds in which they were constructed. This is presented in contrast with the screen based narrative displaying the passion of the collectors who discuss the many figures within their respective collections. In the work the aim is to make reference to the obsession with celebrity within contemporary culture and transpose it to yet another stage.
