Jodie Carey: In the Eyes of Others
Library Shelf Location 18.CARE
Publication Date 2009
Description For its second major exhibition, Towner, the new contemporary art museum, has commissioned Jodie Carey to produce the most ambitious work of her career thus far. Sussex-born artist Carey has created three immense chandeliers, constructed from 9,000 plaster cast human bones, in a large-scale installation that will engulf Towner’s 400m2 Exhibition Gallery. In the Eyes of Others will be Jodie’s first solo exhibition in a UK public gallery. It builds on a previous untitled work in which she laboriously constructed ornate chandeliers from vacuum cleaner dust. Jodie’s work focuses on traditions of ritual, artifice and mortality in contemporary western society. Transforming the space, her large-scale sculptures and installations often seek to overwhelm the visitor and juxtapose monumental scale with the intimacy and intensity of her obsessive craftsmanship.
