Robert Foster-Jones: An echo imprinted

Bringing together work in ceramics and sound, with results
from experiments in photogrammetry software, An echo imprinted reflects on the cave as a point of origin, both culturally and spiritually.  

The installation draws upon Foster-Jones’ recent experiences of becoming a father himself and the loss of his own father, to contemplate how we remember, commemorate, and how fleeting memories 
can leave an indelible mark, or become abstracted in time.  

A performance at Wysing’s outdoor grounds will mark the opening of An echo imprinted on 16 October, with more information to follow in coming weeks.  

The exhibition runs in tandem with and then, a harrowing, bringing together work by Linda Stupart, Carl Gent and Kelechi Anucha.

An echo imprinted is supported by Arts Council England.

Robert Foster-Jones (b. 1989, Wegberg, Germany) is an artist based in Cambridgeshire and has been a studio artist at Wysing Arts Centre since 2017. His work explores the role of the artist as a conduit for revealing hidden forms of knowledge.

Foster-Jones is interested in different religious practices and spiritual beliefs, using influences from his research to create work in sculpture, installation, text and performance.
