Dwellers of the Windy Vessels, 2024
site-specific sculptural installation


Site-specific sculptural installation of hand-built ceramic objects and found objects. Dimensions variable. The objects in the installation are inspired by the oldest musical wind instruments, which are clay vessels. They express the artist’s interest in their cultural, historical and psychological dimensions. They are vehicles of aesthetics and spirituality but also containers for transportation. In the use of black ceramic, the artist refers to the notion of noise and parasite in the paradigm of Michel Serres. The collective is black and makes noise. The ceramic objects are a third black body, the mediating agency of mysterious and tactile character that invites to play, as in playing the instrument but also in an emphasis on playfulness.
