Enjoy a drink at the bar and experience Hart’s new body of ceramic works investigating relationships and domestic life. The car has been explored as an interior space where so many family dynamics are played out. Beyond the windscreen there are urban scenes clamouring with signs and instructions and rural horizons with endless of possible routes to navigate. In Banger the relentless velocity of decision making is as inescapable as the changing weather.
A major new book made especially to accompany the exhibition will be available for purchasing in the gallery. As well as looking back over Hart’s career, it includes installation photography of the show in Edinburgh, and new writing by Fruitmarket director Fiona Bradley, Director of Tate Liverpool Helen Legg, and artist and filmmaker Sarah Wood. It also includes a new short story written by writer Ali Smith, inspired by visits to Emma Hart’s studio during the making of Banger.
