The design festival Southern Sweden Design Days will take place in Malmö on May 19-22, and in the workshop where I rent space we are holding a joint exhibition on the theme LÄNK (Link).
LÄNK is a collective exhibition of the ceramicists active in Artibus' workshops. It is a result of the great breadth and diversity that is represented both in those who create there and in the material they work with.
Link - something that could be a part of a chain, a bridge span, a connection between pieces, people and/or elements. In a time of physical distance, many think of video links, used to maintain contact.
When we work with clay we usually think of pieces that could contain something - like a cup or a pot.
With different techniques and manners, but in a common starting point, each potter interprets the idea of "link". Is it functional, sculptural or conceptual? Does this have a political or societal significance? Is it a more symbolic content; around a ritual, mood or emotion? Is it a connection, a ring, a bridge, a part of a chain...?
Collaborative pieces will also be an opportunity for potters to get closer and connect around 4-handed creations.
I will participate with both an individual and a collaborative work. If you are in Malmö - a warm welcome !
