Dave Marshall

A show about earth, flames, pottery and your location


Terrestrials takes locality as a starting point for activity, looking at the formation of culture through pottery in Aotearoa New Zealand. Responding to traditional techniques, this solo exhibition by Dave Marshall encompasses sculptural responses to wood firing, the gathering of clay and other materials from local sites, and the collective conditions of labour. Terrestrials considers the kinds of knowledge and encounters that emerge when taking the dirt road.
