Pouring from a Vessel of Knowledge

By: PRLog

Marking 75th Anniversary of the arrival of HMT Empire Windrush

KENSINGTON, U.K. - June 8, 2023 - PRLog -- Gallery OCA is pleased to present Pouring from a Vessel of Knowledge at Cromwell Place, South Kensington, London SW7 2JE, showing from 27th June 2023 - 2nd July 2023.

Pouring from a Vessel of Knowledge is a group exhibition presenting the work of four British female artists of Jamaican Heritage: Sonia Elizabeth Barrett, Merissa Hylton, Marcia Patterson, and Katasha Rose.

Marking the 75th Anniversary of the arrival of the HMT Empire Windrush ship, the exhibition explores how the artists use ancestral wisdom to reconcile with the ghosts of Empire through remembrance, reclaiming and reframing. Showcasing work of a variety of mediums, from painted canvases to handmade ceramic pots and a sculptural installation of 'Dreaded Maps' by award-winning artist Sonia Elizabeth Barrett, Pouring from a Vessel of Knowledge demonstrates how the artists tackle the complex legacies of post-colonial migration whilst illuminating the radiance of this era of self-actualisation.

At the centre of Pouring from a Vessel of Knowledge is a desire from each artist to be a voice of truth and to bring forth into the consciousness of the public the wisdom of the ancestors who walked before them. Their work pays homage to the energy of the divine feminine, which is omnipresent; it is found in the sky, within the home of their loved ones and filling the hollow insides of various vessels. This energy source fills them with the knowledge they bestow upon us as we engage with their work.

Connecting all the works in Pouring from a Vessel of Knowledge is the wisdom that each has gained through contemplating the complexities of their identities as Jamaican women. Through their intimate introspective study of self, they have unearthed sacred ancestral intelligence that they offer us to indulge in.
