Green Seed From Dark Earth




Solo Exhibition by Chantal Powell at Haarlem Artspace.

Hooded dwarf gods stand at the ocean edge of the ego mind. Kinsmen of the unconscious, they offer navigation into the darkness and uncertainty for those ready to brave the spirit of the depths. Encountering the unconscious is tortuous knowledge but this golden understanding births new life.

Green Seed From Dark Earth showcases new works by Chantal Powell that have emerged from her research into Jungian depth psychology and the beginnings of her personal inner alchemical journey.

Calcinated clay chambers, primordial images and bronze symbols evoke relics that are at once new and yet also archetypally familiar to our collective remembering.

Chantal Powell creates sculptural works about the unseen aspects of our psyche. A PhD in social psychology and an interest in Jungian theory and alchemy inform her practice.

Powell was shortlisted for the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award in 2015 and has exhibited at venues including the Guildhall Art Gallery in London, Arusha in Edingburgh, The Royal West Academy in Bristol, and at collateral events at the 53rd and 54th Venice Biennales.

She is the founder of the contemporary arts program Hogchester Arts in rural West Dorset. Find out more at: chantalpowell.com

Haarlem Artspace is open Fri­days & Sat­ur­days 11am — 4pm

The exhibition will open at an event on Friday 28th February at 7.30pm.
