In her most recent work, Ginny explores highly narrative English tableware and factory ware from the 17th century to the present. With installation as the supportive context for the ceramic objects, Ginny play's with how these objects inhabit their surroundings with meaning, and how their surroundings project meaning onto them. These constructs open up new narratives about the home, our constructed environments and what it means to be an object. Ginny experiences these narratives as a reflection of some of the big political and social questions of our time.
Ginny Sims is a graduate of the MFA program at the University of Minnesota and a 2013 recipient of a Jerome Ceramic Artist Project Grant and a 2015 recipient of a Jerome Travel Grant. In the spring of 2014, she served as the Artist-in-Residence at the Grand Marais Art Colony. In addition to being a working artist, Sims teaches ceramics and art history at Minneapolis Community and Technical College and at the University of Minnesota.
