Exhibition Details


Föenander Galleries presents an exhibition by Debbie Harris, Corpse Flowers & Chewing Gum

Corpse Flowers and Chewing Gum is Harris’ hot-house presentation of twenty-one ceramic flowers made over the last four years. Accompanying these large-scale sculptures are hordes of miniature flowers that sprout from the corners of the room. In the sugar-sweet landscape, Harris’ plants look good enough to eat: though, they may think the same of you. The influence of the rafflesia is seen in the bulbous form slathered in lilac, cobalt, cornflower, and terracotta glazes. Germinating from the top of the structure bursts a cavity of tentacular thorns. As you navigate the landscape – somewhere between the ocean floor and a Hello Kitty Mars landing – it’s easy to imagine a clay vine curling around your ankle
