Honor Freeman is an Adelaide based artist whose practice utilises the mimetic properties of porcelain, crafting objects that belie their materiality and purpose. Freeman completed her studies in 2001 at the South Australian School of Art. Following graduation, Honor took up an Associate position and Tenant residency in the ceramics studio at JamFactory Craft & Design. Her work has been curated into major exhibitions at institutions throughout Australia, including the MCA's Primavera 2007, Tarrawarra Museum of Art, and Adelaide's Samstag Museum. She has undertaken international residencies at Guldagergaard, Denmark's International Ceramic Museum and in the US at Indiana University's School of Art & Design. In 2006 Freeman travelled to Chile to exhibit and participate in the South Project, continuing her project on/off/on, installing porcelain light switches and powerpoints clandestinely in public spaces. Freeman has been exhibiting since 2000 and her work is held in numerous public collections including the NGV, Art Gallery of South Australia, ArtBank and Washington DC's National Museum of Women in the Arts. Her works feature in the publication 101 Contemporary Australia artists, published by the NGV. Most recently she was invited to undertake the Guildhouse Collections Project at the Art Gallery of South Australia, the outcome of this residency 'Ghost Object" was exhibited in 2019 as part of the SALA Festival.
