Pseudomorphs of a Crater (2023), Gallery 333, Exeter Phoenix
Volcanic material (stone - pigment - paint), resin climbing holds - plaster reproductions, original postcard - amended, reproductions
A stone’s throw from the gallery, a volcano lies extinct. A deep rumbling envelops the space, purple basalt dots the walls of the gardens, and shadows in the landscape provide glimpses of what lurks underneath.
Through research and storytelling, gathered imagery and unknown objects, this site-specific installation expands upon my investigation into the relationship between people and place, through the geology beneath our feet.

Risograph maps for Pseudomorphs of a Crater
A map collage and text piece exploring the location beyond the gallery space. Offered as an invitation to explore the adjoining Rougemont Gardens (the site of an ancient lava flow), the map explores narratives and references surrounding the geological history of the area.
Reproductions of altered postcards, hand coloured with volcanic pigment. Four designs relating to the exhibition, including quotes from the backs of postcards originally sent from Rougemont.
