Knowledge is Power: 6 Towns

Keith Harrison has been commissioned by Stoke-on-Trent Libraries and Archives in association with BCB to create a major new work, Knowledge is Power.  Inspired by the special Six Towns Collection of local history books, Harrison will work with local industry, and over 200 school children and community groups from the area to make a complete set of replica clay books which will be heated daily to unpredictable effect using specifically manufactured electrical elements embedded in each volume and triggered by an interactive switching mechanism.

HeartBeat

In January 2017 a group of artists came together for an intensive 2 week residency in a remote village in rural Maharastra. Warli painters, artists and craft workers, a musician, filmaker, story teller, designers and ceramic artists, collaborated in creating an installation in the landscape of the village, as a collective response to the idea of establishing an art centre as a site for the preservation and development of Warli cultural creative practice.
