Habit I, Habit II and Habit III are a series of ceramic works that emulate textiles. The pieces were developed and made by Harriet Watts for exhibition with ‘1-OK CLUB FOR NGV – WORKS 1-43′ at the Ian Potter Design Store, National Gallery of Victoria, August 6 – September 7, 2015.
Harriet wants the audience to first see the works as soft, malleable knitted forms, and then to experience surprise and disbelief upon studying the objects more closely. The objects themselves are each familiar and unremarkable, their novel qualities playfully challenging our habitual assumptions about materiality, form and function.
The pieces are available for purchase through 1-OK CLUB.
