My work is about following each piece and being intuitively
open to an unspoken dialogue that spans a breath of choices and unknown exit points.

For me being an artist is an act of prosaic looking that feeds making for heterogeneous artefacts that confront the real world. I see my work as an anthology of objects, each being a unique incomplete tangible question that collects personal provenance. What stimulates my work and research is the ongoing amassments of stuff I collect and own. Obsessions happen without acknowledgement and my inventory shows no boundaries to objects, just an attraction that I find it hard to explain other than: we find each-other.

Inherited Absents: Soft performance 15/3/18 AIR Gallery

Soft performance for the opening of my solo exhibition I Object, original photographs by Harriet Shooter-Redfearn


I Object solo show at AIR Gallery

This exhibition brings together works that questions exactly what is the art. Through complex processes that distil how the work is made it becomes a myriad of efforts. With autobiographical, folkloric and environmental influences. The show is curated from invested interest in challenging perceptions of objects, both in their altered state and how they are presented to be seen. Shrines and altars are a point of direction for how the work is displayed. A recurring theme with the work is the horizontal plane and how this dictates an understanding of the visual reading.
