Zhu Ohmu’s debut solo exhibition, A Long-Term Longing, gives physicality to experiences. Consisting of nine ceramic vessels and a text work that exists as part of an installation, this body of work addresses the artist’s personal experience of longing over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The work marks a conceptual departure from previous bodies of work, as Ohmu moves to focus on subjective accounts of a collective experience. The highly intimate nature of this show engages with the critical practice of auto-theory1 to address autobiographical and subjective experiences of separation. A critical engagement with this theory has led to the development of a body of work that both reflects and archives the experience of personal longing and its undulations.
Opening: 3 – 5pm Saturday 12 March
