Performer Details Willow pattern submerged in political jibes, classic urns decorated with lyrical portraits, garniture figurines poised in confrontational narratives, Wedd’s work is a day at the beach - with a smash of home-baked reality pie in your face for good measure. Traditional ceramic styles imbued with meaty metaphor and peppered full of personal gusto burst the seams of this solo exhibition of new and staple works, showcasing the breadth of this iconic artist’s career. In 2013 JamFactory launched the first in a series of solo exhibitions celebrating the achievements of South Australia’s most outstanding and influential craft and design practitioners. Each exhibition presents leading practitioners with significant national and international profiles and considerable influence in their chosen field. Held annually during the SALA (South Australian Living Artist) Festival before touring nationally the fourth in this series is JamFactory Icon 2016 Gerry Wedd Kitschen Man. The exhibition will tour nationally to 12 venues from 2016 to 2019, with the support of Australia Council’s Contemporary Touring Initiative. JamFactory Icon Gerry Wedd Kitschen Man is a JamFactory touring exhibition and has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
