Mum’s Hug Series 2 Catherine Newton
Sat June 15 - Sun July 28Free admission
15 June – 28 July
Mums’ Hug series 2 celebrates the important role mothers have in today’s society. It symbolises the physical and emotional connection of a mother and child through touch; specifically the act of hugging. Capturing a mother’s breath in a hot glass form and exploiting its fluidity, Newton dressed in layers of heat resistant fabric and hugged the hot glass.
The resultant textured, transparent sculptural forms sit on anthropomorphic plinths, displayed at the height of children’s bellybuttons to highlight the various ages and size of each child. The colour has also been chosen by the mother to reflect each of her children. An analogy is drawn between hugging hot glass, intimidating and invigorating, and that of being a mother, which is also daunting and stimulating.
