Jonathan Baldock: Porthmeor Artists’ Residency Programme guest

We are delighted and excited to welcome artist Jonathan Baldock as our Porthmeor Artists’ Residency Programme guest. Jonathan will be here at Porthmeor Studios until the end of the year and will give a public talk on December 14th.
Jonathan Baldock works across multiple platforms including sculpture, installation and performance. With work often taking on a biographical form, he addresses the trauma, stress, sensuality, mortality, and spirituality around our relationship to the body and the space it inhabits. Baldock has an ongoing interest in the contrast between the material qualities of ceramic and fabric used within his work. Concerned with removing the functional aspects of the materials he engages, Baldock instead works in a performative way through his sculptural assemblages bringing the viewer, the object and the space they simultaneously occupy into question as a ritual act or theatre.
