  • A Slice Through A Glass

    a_slice_through_a_glassBecky Shaw authors a catalog essay in response to a series of ongoing conversations with Jerome Harrington. Shaw ruminates on the dualistic nature of glass and the problematics of seeing through it vs. seeing it. “Glass is a material we can see through already, hence its common use as a metaphorical and physical carrier of honesty and clarity. However, as Jerome’s research discovers, the interior time of glass- its manufacture- is hidden. Almost wilfully, the ‘interior’ of glass hides in plain sight, offering mythological versions of materiality that bear no resemblance to the truth.” This catalog was published in 2014 for an exhibition of Harrington’s at S1 Artspace in Sheffield, England.
