Artist Profile

Keith Harrison Profile Image

Keith Harrison

Keith Harrison challenges preconceptions about the use and practice of ceramics. He is interested in the physical transformation of clay from a raw state, and the transformative qualities of sound. Using technology and sound in live public experiments, he attempts to permanently change the properties of clay or to produce a sensory alteration such as the generation of sound or an aroma.
Ceramics Resident at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, from October 2012 to March 2013, Harrison developed a series of temporary installations and performances responding to the Museum’s ceramics collection, titled Disruptions. Harrison has also realised large-scale works for public galleries and museums including the Jerwood Space and Camden Arts Centre, London, and mima, Middlesbrough. Harrison will be working with Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery as part of New Expressions 3.
