‘Significant Other: Bulging Water’ is an exhibition of felted, ceramic, stone, and salt sculptures produced throughout her experience and time of pregnancy. Goodchild’s approach to making is both connected to craft and the land through the elemental qualities in the making process. Materially, felt and ceramics derive from the fundamental need to contain, carry and protect, commonly descending from living organisms and their own surrounding ecosystems. Through connecting histories of craft, Goodchild places focus upon touch through her making as ‘sensation as translation’; an idea routed in the haptic; to feel within new realms and more importantly, to look at touch as potency.
Sophie Goodchild (b.1993, Chester, UK) lives and works in Nottingham, and has most recently been included in group presentations at Kupfer Project, London; One Thoresby Street, Nottingham; and Saatchi Gallery, London. Goodchild is currently the recipient of the Backlit Gallery studio award in Nottingham, was a recipient of the 2021 London Bronze Editions Prize and a finalist in the 2020 Ingram Prize.Posted by Max Mowbray on Monday 28 March 2022
