Ovid In Exile by British Artist Rachel Kneebone

Why We Recommend it

British artist Rachel Kneebone’ s intricate ceramic sculptures invite spectators to think about the boundaries of the body.


British artist Rachel Kneebone presents porcelain sculptures and drawings in her first solo exhibition in Asia. Her work explores what it means to inhabit a body – its physical limitations and cognitive possibilities. Capturing emotional states of high intensity, her intricate porcelain works address and question the human condition: renewal, transformation, life cycles and the experience of inhabiting the body.

Kneebone’s sculptures operate in a near-subliminal space, blurring the boundaries between the conscious and the subconscious, the real and the imagined, everything and nothing. Working in porcelain, the material properties of her work further heighten and convey an awareness of opposing states, appearing at once heavy and solid as light and soft.
