Cutting Teeth by Connor Coulston & Dan Hollings
For this show, Connor wanted to project his insecurities, fears, hopes and dreams onto charity shop and museum kitsch ornaments.
The sculptures are a result of different conversations he has had with himself through making. Many of these conversations are usually questions he has asked the clay; like why am I still single if I’m so god damn sexy?, am I depressed or am I just feeling low? and why won’t Harry Styles love me, Goddammit?!
He has tried to tackle personal issues such as depression, loneliness and low self-esteem through humour. This body of work is an exploration of what it means to be him. He urges you not to feel guilty about laughing at his expense, but be wary that we all know someone whom we love who may be asking the same questions but can’t find solitude in clay.
