Exhibition:

"Cooled pride, roused ardour"
Nicholas Smith


Opening: Friday 30 November 6 - 8 pm
Dates: 28 November - 22 December 2018



Catalogue:
Cooled pride, roused ardour

'Cooled pride, roused ardour’ investigates the artists queer identity through objects of personal worth. A pit-fired ceramic chandelier stands in for a body. A pair of high heeled boots sit nearby, their fabric taken from a family sofa, itself an old wedding present to his parents. On the floor, a pot depicting the martyrdom of St Sebastian is sheathed in a sacramental stole made by his mother.
