Jacqueline Poncelet: In the Making

Featuring sculpture, painting and textiles, MIMA presents a solo exhibition of artist, Jacqueline Poncelet.


1st February 2023 - 23rd July 2024


MIMA presents a solo exhibition surveying 50 years of work by acclaimed artist Jacqueline Poncelet. Poncelet’s work is characterised by a restless exploration of materials and making that is evident throughout her practice. As an artist she is fascinated by how tastes and fashions play out in the ways that humans dress, decorate living spaces, shape architecture and build infrastructures. Working across diverse media, Poncelet gathers and transforms patterns found in our cityscapes and rural landscapes.

Having trained in ceramics and working with clay for over ten years, Poncelet moved into making sculpture, painting and textiles before turning her attention to public commissions. Poncelet now works across a range of scales and media and this exhibition presents a rare opportunity to experience the breadth of her work. It includes tiny, delicate ceramics made in the 1970s, large, brightly coloured paintings and textiles from the 1990s, as well as watercolours and wallpapers made specifically for this exhibition.
