Pots and Podiums – St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington

Yoshiko Phillips and Mawuena Kattah’s site-specific commission ‘Pots and Podiums’ is currently installed at St Marys Hospital, Paddington the first of two installations with the second installation taking place at Charing Cross Hospital, Hammersmith in March.

Yoshiko Phillips’ bespoke vinyl wall based decals create a series of podiums and plinths in direct conversation with framed prints, drawings and paintings of pots by Mawuena Kattah.

For ‘Pots and Podiums’ Kattah has drawn from a significant body of work, created since joining the Intoart Studio in 2007. Made during her residency in the V&A ceramics studio and shown for the first time are Kattah’s series of six pastel drawings of pots, many drawn directly from works in the V&A collections.

Yoshiko Phillips has a bold, graphic illustrative style full of complex motifs, dazzling colours and engaging characters. For ‘Pots and Podiums’ she has created architecturally scaled, wall based ornaments inspired by gothic and medieval ironwork, masonry and woodwork.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Artist Commission

Ntiense Eno Amooquaye’s commission for Chelsea and Westminster Hospital as part of the CW+ visual arts programme is now installed alongside other commissioned artists, including Brian Eno, Isaac Julien and Richard Woods.

In response to the commission Ntiense created a new large scale work on paper, incorporating drawings of the Italian Gardens in Hyde Park and new poetry developed from extensive reading at the National Poetry Library.

‘The poem is about inside and outside, the weather, the colours of flowers and plants. I wanted to take people on a journey through gardens.’ Ntiense Eno Amooquaye

The artwork is now displayed on level one just around the corner from the most valuable works in the collection by Veronese and opposite the longest work in the collection by Bert Irvin.
