Tuesdays to Saturdays, 10am to 5pm Wednesday 2 December to Saturday 19 December

MAY SPACE is proud to present a suite of new porcelain works by represented artist Ruth Ju-Shih Li for her exhibition Inflorescence.

"During a recent residency at the Yingge Ceramics Museum in Taiwan, Ruth Ju-Shih Li was struck by the ability of colour to trigger memories from her childhood living in Taiwan. By experimenting with texture, colour, composition and symbols, Li attempts to give form to these memories; transforming a fleeting reminiscence into a tangible object. The delicacy of her porcelain forms reflect the fragile and transient nature of memory, while bursts of colour interrupt the intricately sculpted white porcelain, reminiscent of an unexpected memory intruding on the everyday.

The works for Inflorescence act as both personal reminders for Li, continuing her fascination with the autobiographical, as well as triggers for the audience, seeking to conjure a vast array of emotions and experiences." Ruth Ju-Shih Li, 2020

MAY SPACE has an active Covid safety plan. All visitors are required to provide their name and contact number upon entry, surfaces are disinfected regularly, and we have a maximum capacity within the Gallery of 45 people.
