Julia Morison: Head[case]

17 October 2020 - 14 March 2021

Presented by: Tauranga Art Gallery

An installation of five hexagonal rooms and 100 ceramic heads, each distinctly different from the next, by one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most inventive artists, Christchurch base Julia Morison.

Modelled on a hat-maker’s block, each head is made distinctly different from the next by the addition of exaggerated features, peculiar appendages and uneasy textures. An excess of production, a riot of form, an assembly of strange types, Head[case] is a playfully surreal work. Bearing only a cursory relationship to the human head, we nevertheless can’t help but imagine Morison’s mutated heads coming alive, what strange new senses and ways of understanding the world they might reveal…

Project Partner: Organised by Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū and toured with support from Objectspace Auckland
