SUTTAHSCAPE

Harry Rogan-Jones - Olivia Jones

The title of the exhibition comes from the name given for a yeti, 'Suttah', invented by Harry Rogan-Jones who is the 9-year-old son of Olivia Jones. This has subsequently become a nickname they use for one another.

 Suttahscape is a collaboration between a 9-year-old child and his mother, who is a practicing artist.

 Children are often discouraged away from the imaginative world of disorder they inhabit and forced ever more into a world of bureaucracy, hierarchy and discipline full of oppositional binaries. Suttahscape offers an antithesis to these notions. 

 Suttahscape examines the domestic situation, gesture, spontaneity, humour, disruptions, play and slippage of language (visual/verbal). 

 The work also explores themes of maternal subjectivity; questioning what it means to work as an artist and live as a mother, balancing notions of how something should be, while a child is often questioning and crossing those boundaries.

 Within the process of making the work different forms of collaboration and artistic practice are re-considered and played with, pushing the limits of established methods of making.
