TEXT PLATES

ceramics, glaze

2021-present

TEXTPLATES is the continuation of a long-term artistic experiment with ceramics and text, as part of my performative work in the public space. Instructions on the plates, in the form of short sentences, invite passers-by to walk and perform actions in the location where they find themselves. For the instructions, I draw inspiration from people’s ideas – drawn from conversations, literature, philosophy, scientific research – about feminism, plants, trees and microorganisms. I further developed the text plates, which previously served as viewing tools in the walking work TRACK (2019), during my residency at Sundaymorning@ekwc, from January to March 2021. During this period, I experimented with a variety of clays, carried out tests with CNC milling machines and drills, compiled a range of coloured clays and tried out new glaze recipes.
