Strange Fruit - The Congregation VII

$ 2,200
  • Description
    'Strange Fruit - The Congregation VII' is a unique sculpture by the British artist, Chris Day, created from handblown & sculpted glass with terracotta, micro bore copper pipe and copper wire.

    This piece was created as a part of the artist's ‘Strange Fruit - Congregation', a unique installation made specifically for their solo exhibition in 2021 at Harewood House in Leeds, curated by Vessel director Angel Monzon.

    Chris Day is an emerging glass & mixed media artist and a recent graduate from Wolverhampton University, who received a special commendation during the 2019 British Glass Biennale held in Stourbridge, UK.

    Creating works that are highly personal, Day’s intention is to discuss and investigate the treatment of black people in Britain and the United States of America. Much of his research has focussed on the history of the slave trade in the Eighteenth Century.

    In the artist’s own words;

    “Like the glass I have pushed my approach in how I work with glass and ceramics in both traditional and experimental methods, to create contemporary artworks that represent my passion for this part of our history. As a black glassblower, I am one of few and on a quest to find and inspire more. My main purpose, however, is to engage the audience on issues that are hard to confront on many levels, using art to help overcome some of the traumas that haunt our collective past”
