‘Overshoot and Collapse’ was a body of chiefly figurative ceramic works, produced by Katie Cuddon whilst she was a Norma Lipman Research Fellow at Newcastle University. The exhibition explored our desire and failure to represent complex sentiments through a series of sculptures that looked half complete or broken, conveying gestures and expressions that were subsequently ambiguous.
