The exhibition showcases more than one hundred unique works of the latest wares from the “Agee Manufacturing Company”, the fictitious enterprise that motivated Agee’s three-decade career in ceramics, and her ongoing series of Hand Warmers. Agee’s practice has focused on replicating objects by hand and process employed to simulate mass production and engage ambiguous delineations between fine art, design, and craft; histories of cultural appropriation and exchange; and the range of women’s lived experiences.
Inspired by late 17th and 18 century Italian folk salt cellars, Agee’s series Madonnas of the Girl Child realistically or abstractly engage motifs of the divine infant. Depicting all females made from a variety of clay, formed with different techniques and modeled in a myriad of sizes, the sheer panoply on view will showcase Agee’s mastery of the medium and her delight in experimentation.
Complimented by her ongoing series Hand Warmers, the vessels reference footwear and were historically meant to be filled with hot water and clapped in one hands. Hand Warmers exemplifies Agee’s deft technical skill; sophisticated synthetization of cultural histories ; and ingenuity with color, pattern and form.
