Space Station Sixty-Five is delighted to announce that we have commissioned Cathie Pilkington and Jay Cloth to undertake a new collaboration, culminating in this exhibition, Misericord.
Please note: this exhibition contains some images which may be considered unsuitable for children
Curated by Directors Jo David and Rachael House, the two artists have created an organic sculptural structure, a wunderkammer constructed of other objects, old doors, pieces of timber, combined together to form a provisional, built environment. This support structure serves to bring together disparate objects and convey the topsy-turvy underworld being presented by the artists.
“Misericord is an exhibit, a tableau, a collaborative presentation incorporating the work of two artists, Jay Cloth and Cathie Pilkington. Like the excessively ornamented ecclesiastical structures of the title, Misericord is a licentious space hosting a heterodox collection of images, an elaborate framework into which sculptures and pictures are recursively nested.
Jay Cloth’s profane, iconic collages are wrought from vintage colour lithographs. Cathie Pilkington’s work is a kind of meta-crafting, deploying techniques and imagery from the collective unconscious of painting, sculpture, cheap souvenirs and children’s books.”
