Looking at the scraps of paper, the images, lists and photocopies stuck to my wall, I realised that I'd been accumulating and sifting ideas for this room of porcelain for over ten years. For this exhibition at the Geffrye Museum I tried to create an installation in which the pots define the structure of the space. The room pushes at the architectural elements, opens up the walls and the floor and the ceiling and the windows as places for the pots to be. It is reminiscent of rooms throughout history which have been devoted to the display of porcelain, but it has its feet firmly placed in the other places where you see groups of pots together: the chemist's laboratory bench, the shelves of the tea marchant. I wanted to capture some sense of mass, a feeling of booty, treasure, cargo, tribute. The room is complete but it feels capable of endless refinement and redefinition.
