Description

Janice Cherry's upcoming exhibition, ‘Torsos: Vulnerability and Resilience’, explores the concept of ancestral memory through representations of female torsos.

The collection of ceramic sculptures focuses on trauma, powerlessness and vulnerability balanced against resilience, hope and love. The female forms are vessels which hold secrets, memories, trauma and pain. They do not require identifying features as they carry universal relevance.

The sculptures demonstrate influences of archaeological finds and bog bodies and explore Carl Jung’s theory of the Collective Unconscious. This current body of work contemplates the sharing of knowledge, skills and resilience to life’s challenges and traumas passed on through memory from our ancestors.

We are vulnerable to the effects of trauma yet possess enormous capacity to overcome and cope. The viewer is invited to consider the contribution which their own ancestors have made to their unique abilities to overcome and celebrate our vulnerabilities and strengths through our shared human experiences.
