Keith Harrison

Keith Harrison proposes a multi-faceted performative sculpture bringing together industrial forces within the context of the forest, inspired by his upbringing in the heavily post-industrialized Black Country. Keith will explore constructing a series of mud jumps through the forest, working with BMXers; from the same mud he will build a prototype car to be launched from a monumental ramp as a public event. Keith is particularly fascinated by the potential for the direct physical transformation of clay from a raw state utilising industrial and domestic electrical systems in a series of time-based public experiments. He completed his MA in Ceramics and Glass at Royal College of Art, in 2002. From 2012 – 2013 he undertook a Ceramics Residency at the V&A Museum, and has exhibited widely, most recently at KARST, Plymouth, and at the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff.
