The rich visual and creative imagination of Jacquetta Hawkes continues to inspire artists: working with them is one of the delights of managing her Archive. In 2014, Kate Morrell created the exhibition Pots Before Words for Gallery II at the University of Bradford. She drew on the ideas and formats to be found in the collection to develop fascinating new artworks, including this sculpture and “portable toolkit”, Lazy Susan.
In March 2015, we will be delighted to welcome Kate and Lazy Susan back to Bradford. Kate is extending and reflecting on the original project by filming female archaeologists and archivists (using Lazy Susan) to discuss and explore artefacts from their profession. I will be one of the interviewees!
