Concept

Inspired by architectural and geometric forms in Minimalist and Post-Minimalist art, I aimed to create an installation in which I explore different ways to articulate and reinterpret the circular form: from a complete circle to its deconstruction into segments. On a cerebral level, it is an exploration on the subject of memory. The individual pieces represent the fragments of memories that we have, where they form to create a collective memory. The gold lustre lines on selected pieces are representative of a marker in time and space in our memory. Ceramic is a medium that has many unexpected outcomes. Its irregularity gives uniqueness to each piece, perhaps allowing us the chance to appreciate the imperfection that happens along the process.

 

Medium: ceramic, glazes, gold lustre
