Other Ways of Knowing Exhibit

Craft Alliance is pleased to present Other Ways of Knowing, a solo exhibition with Kansas City-based ceramic artist Casey Whittier.

 

Like so many of us, during the pandemic Whittier spent a great deal of time at home. Objects from home began to collide with objects from work; domestic spaces altered; and so did her relationship with those objects. Other Ways of Knowing considers these household objects and their importance in our lives, as carries of memories and metaphors for the human experience. The exhibition was designed especially for the space at Craft Alliance to recreate the interior of a house, but one that is just a little bit strange. Towels, t-shirts, and brooms have been meticulously recreated in ceramics and glass as though they have fossilized.

 

Whittier writes about the objects in her exhibition, “Employing a variety of craft processes executed primarily in clay and glass, each work calls attention to its physical and material properties as well as its making; they call attention to the ‘other ways of knowing’ or other ways of seeing that shape my sense of self, sense of belonging, sense of other.”
