Developed by Shepparton Art Museum in partnership with Bendigo Art Gallery and La Trobe Art Institute, artist Damon Moon presents a series of exhibitions that respond to these unique Victorian regional collections and spaces.

Moon has selected collections of vessels or pots that are specific to each institution, history and context. Using slip cast multiples and repetitive forms, Moon explores the subtle shifts in technique and materiality between his work and the selected ceramics. He offers a form of object-based conversation between his own ceramics works and works from each Collection selected to reflect on each place’s history of art and industry.

These inspirations include the utilitarian vessels of early Chinese migrants; domestic-ware made by Bendigo Pottery; and a series of works selected to respond to a building’s architecture.
