When grindcore met ceramics

After a recent conversation about my interest in the space between high brow and low brow art, Keith Harrison was brought to my attention.

In 2013, whilst artist Keith Harrison was Ceramicist in Residence at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, he proposed a work whereby grindcore legends Napalm Death would play a set synced to speakers covered in ceramics and slip.

Now this did end up happening, but it wasn’t in the V&A. I’m intrigued by how Harrison played out his interest in the two seemingly disparate areas. grindcore and ceramics…amazing.
