28 November – 23 January 2021, Mission Gallery – To be re-opened post Covid restrictions

NOW OPEN: 11 June – 03 July 2021

Chris Bird-Jones has produced a series of spoon-like forms, both symbolic and sensuous. Interacting with these pieces requires care; to be considered and secure, cradled in one’s arms like a newborn child. One slip and all would be lost, shattered, mirroring the fragility of our human condition, of a life in balance.

The nature of glass, a man-made material, reflects the ideas behind the work. There is a playfulness between light and movement, combined with the myriad magical qualities inherent in all forms of glass. These pieces will be shown alongside moving images, adding layers of reference and moments of context. This new body of work, including Silver Spoons and Juicy Spoons, contains the traces of stories of lived experience.
