2014 IAMD Thesis Exhibition by Martha Griffith

Please join the Interdisciplinary Master’s in Art, Media and Design Program and the Graduate Studies Department in celebrating the IAMD Thesis Exhibition of MFA Candidate Martha Griffith.

Casting Seams presents a collection of handmade ceramic plate multiples based on found 19th century Blue Willow plate shards. Repeatedly cast and re-cast, the forms shed light on the matrix of positive and negative space in order to examine processes of reconstruction – that of the plates themselves and of the stories that are embedded within the found fragments.

This site-responsive exhibition takes place at and between two relational locations in Grey County: the South Grey Museum in Flesherton, and 7 km away at the site where the shards were found on the former property of Edward Patterson, an early black settler, preacher, and stagecoach driver believed to have been held in slavery in Maryland, U.S.

Casting Seams seeks to make visible the concealed networks of both the material origin of the remnants and their accompanying narratives. From the earth to the museum context, the shards materially dialogue with private and public spaces – environments where meanings and materials are made and remade – re-formulating old meanings with new objects ‘in situ.’

Throughout spring and summer 2014 graduating candidates from OCAD University’s Interdisciplinary Master’s in Art, Media and Design (IAMD) program will present their thesis work in galleries across Toronto. These exhibitions explore a wide variety of interdisciplinary subject matter and media including, drawing & painting, video, performance, ceramics, printmaking, digital technology, sculpture and installation.
