PILLAR TO NOTHING

Simply questioning “What if..?” leads to a different perspective. By changing the focus area, a new exploration field reveals itself. In “The Pillar to Nothing”, a sculptural installation, the artist follows this idea, applying it to a deep but subtle analysis of her working process. She slightly modifies traditional practices to generate a quest for unpredictable and secondary results. 

In ceramics, the slip casting technique produces scraps – the leftovers from moulds that hide within the form of the primary object.  On the exterior though, they display an indecipherable meaning and purpose. These opposing qualities make them beautiful, complex, and important in themselves. They are therefore collected and arranged methodically. One by one, they pile up and turn into a modular ceramic body that bears a resemblance to a column. The artist demonstrates more interest in observing the connections between materials and actions than in obtaining an aesthetic or functionality.
