Untitled 2004+2009
Multiple ceramics on grandstand
301 x 246 x 290 cm
Among the martial steel helmet and the kitschy figure of the dog, candlesticks, signs and flat masks, toilet paper holders including toilet paper, lie and hang various vessels and objects on the painted wooden grandstand—all handmade in ceramic and mostly colourfully glazed. Some are very accurately formed then apparently sloppily painted; others are precisely coloured and labelled but unfinished in form. All the ceramics show signs of having been made by hand.
Although we discover objects from everyday life, they seem to result from a creative chaos in which imaginative forms, colours and objects emerge that resist any categorization and are instead part of a magic, imaginary reality inherent in art as well as the circus. The juxtaposition of realistic and abstruse objects and the associated question of the perfection of works of art is, however, just one possible interpretation.
Moreover, the presentation of ceramics on a grandstand introduces an unusual situation between the viewer and the work. Although the grandstand functions as a kind of pedestal for the works exhibited, it can still perform its function as seating. Yet it is not we who sit on it in order to see the works but the art that sits opposite us, calling the relationship to the viewer into question. We notice that we are on the wrong side of the circus ring, and there is no more room on the grandstand for us. Nevertheless we enter into a dialogue with the works and our surroundings that makes us part of the presentation as a whole.
