Driven from Their Homes chronicles the last years of diaspora in Syria. The gallery is dedicated to an episodic journey through ceramic scenarios. As viewers we move with the refugees from the destruction of a home city to escape by boat. The largest part of the installation, The Long Line, depicts hundreds of fleeing Syrians. Harriet Diamond’s ceramic figures, so approachable and real, bring the viewer into communion with these beleaguered people.
At the beginning of each week in this month-long exhibition, the artist will create paintings to document the previous week’s work and then compose a new image directly on the gallery walls. This evolving work will be arranged and re-arranged a total of four times, and its history recorded, reflected, and absorbed into itself. The lineage of Moving Pictures, too, dates back to previous exhibitions. Visit www.jessicaJtam.com to view site-specific paintings Welcome to the Jungle, Leglocked, and DECKLE LOG.
