Clad at the Ragged School Museum via Regent’s Canal with Matthew Raw

Matthew Raw’s ceramic work looks at the title foundations that make up our cities as mnemonic capsules of migration, flux and the continuously interchanging urban landscape that surrounds us. 

With a focus on migration in recent political climate, the very term now carries with it a sense of movement from elsewhere heading inwards - into our local realms. There exists however a migration much subtler than what is gracing the headlines of our news outlets, the silenced flux of people constantly taking place around the city. From the regeneration of neighbourhoods, to the even more subtle exchange of inhabitants and purpose of structures that surpass the claws of urban planners. It is precisely this sense of migration that ceramic artist Matthew Raw investigates with his new work and debut solo exhibition Clad in East London’s Ragged School Museum. Having gone through numerous functional transformations, the museum is here used as a framework for Clad, as it looks at urban evolution through sculptural ceramic tiles. 

Over the course of ten days from May 4th - 14th, the exhibition will both display eight works made of clay, terracotta and earthenware and incorporate a journey along Regent’s canal from Matthew’s Hoxton studio by a converted barge. Looking at the transient nature of urban texture and how the movement of people directly shapes, warped and makes new, Matthew’s Clad is a subtle reflection of nuances and methodologies behind urban change.

Below is a photo story depicting the canal journey as Matthew transported the eight artworks to the exhibition space before its opening day. For more information on the show make sure to email Jodi on jodi@zetteler.co.uk.
