Artist talk: Claudia Clare: Christine Keeler the survivor

Saturday 8 June 2019, 2-3.30pm

In association with the exhibition, ‘Dear Christine’, curated by Fionn Wilson, Claudia Clare will give a talk focusing on Christine Keeler the survivor: survivor of poverty and exploitation and her goal of the ordinary, secure life. She will discuss why she made her work for the exhibition – its form (the pilgrim flask) and method (broken and mended). Claudia will also discuss the image of the prostituted woman in figurative art, with a focus on archetypes: the Fallen Woman, the Woman Taken in Adultery, the Magdelene, etc. religious archetypes which often feature in ceramics.

Claudia Clare is a ceramicist and writer based in London. Author of Subversive Ceramics (Bloomsbury 2015), she contributes regularly to Ceramic Review. Clare is known for her large-scale, slip-painted, earthenware jars that depict scenes that show the impact of major events on the lives of ordinary people.
