ART OPENING: Stop Bugging Me: Frame 3 Jo Addison

In Jo Addison’s sculptures resolute, yet ambiguous forms are navigated around language and singular interpretation. Fixed meanings are abandoned to process and, often assuming anthropomorphic qualities, the resulting objects disclose the legacy of their making.

About The Artist

Jo Addison puts in process an encounter with things.

In her sculptures, resolute yet ambiguous forms are navigated around language and singular interpretation. In work that is apparently casually made, the legacy of a paradoxically slow and often repetitive way of making is cautiously disclosed.

Fixed meanings are abandoned to process and, often assuming anthropomorphic qualities, the finished pieces are the result of a method in which the nub or essence of a thing is revealed. The relationship between objects and the body, and of objects to one another is intrinsic to the haptic and spatial curiosity at the heart of Addison’s practice.
