Visit / Exhibitions / James Rigler : Room Service


James Rigler : Room Service 10 Jan – 17 Feb
Review Gallery

Rigler’s mould-forms call simultaneously to industry and architecture, to engineering as well as sculpture. With their strict, efficient lines, they reflect on robotic replication... (F. Jardine 2012)

In autumn of 2012 James Rigler installed some new ceramic pieces in Pollok House, the Maxwell’s Georgian manor in Pollok Country Park. These works, predominantly glossy and highly-glazed, respond directly to the genteel architectural embellishments in the house. They include a newly-tiled floor in the china closet; a lantern (or cage) for the eagle grasping the pendant light in the main hall; and a hanging garland of flowers that reflects the preoccupation inside the house with floral decoration.

These ceramics will be installed at The Lighthouse, challenging Rigler to re-position the site-specific works within the 1990’s architecture of the Review Gallery. James Rigler studied Architecture at the Bartlett School, 3D Craft at the University of Brighton and gained an MA in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art. His work is in public and private collections, including the V&A and Chatsworth House, Derbyshire. In 2011 he was Craft Resident at Cove Park, and awarded the Jerwood Prize for Making.
