Interchange Junction. Howick Place London 2014
Lost and Found. Window Gallery, Central Saint Martins 2016
Continuing his relationship with Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins, each year Rob Kesseler sets the first year students a challenge to construct large three-dimensional clay forms based on his images of pollen and seeds. The task is to interpret rather than copy and to transform the flat two-dimensional prints into dynamic complex structures hundreds of times larger than the original specimens. Each year the students rise to the challenge with a mature and astonishing dexterity to produce a landscape of remarkable forms. To extend their vision beyond the studio and into a professional arena it has been possible to create exhibition opportunities to reveal their work to wider audiences. Interchange Junction was an international exhibition in a new office development curated by HS Projects to coincide with the unveiling of a new Yinka Shonibare outside the building. Lost and Found was commissioned to coincide with Ceramic Art London, an international exhibition of over eighty ceramic artists being held for the first time at CSM.
