Taste Contemporary is proud to present ‘Going Beyond: Michael Brennand-Wood and Anne Marie Laureys’ at 4 Cromwell Place, London from Tuesday 30 May to Sunday 4 June 2023.

For this exhibition, Taste Contemporary presents a new body of Michael’s work called ‘Storyboards’. Created between 2020 and 2022, this series embraces the unpredictable as an important component of creative thought. “It’s about finding a narrative within a collection of seemingly random images. I’m far more interested in finding a new story within work, than illustrating an existing concept.” – Michael Brennand-Wood.

Michael’s work will be shown alongside Belgian ceramic artist Anne Marie Laureys. Laureys begins her process by throwing a classic, symmetrical pot. Whilst the clay is still soft and wet, she pulls, folds, pinches and punctures it. Suggestive of Michael’s ‘Storyboard’ series, her pieces appear to have a spontaneous, unplanned quality. However, Laureys takes her time to find the shape of a vessel, remoulding and refolding the clay over and over again until it speaks with her unique voice.
