Lanua’ 2019

[vc_empty_space height=”20px”]

Lanua’ (to move) is an attempt to create a 2D language through the use of a 3D technique. I use pottery, a craft whose purpose is to create domestic ware. I distance it from functionality and try to transform it into conceptual art. I try to capture the essence of movement, to express minimalism through craft. The manual manipulation adds a new layer to the work and the serial methodology receives a one-off face. The origin shape is a circle, which is the result of the basic action of lifting the clay. Also, because it contains both 2 and 3D, depending on the point of view. Finally, the fact that it’s capable of movement, even after firing. This is contrary to the rules of the ceramic which is supposed to convey stability. I am interested in the tension created, in the instability and the desire for balance, the moving body, despite the fear of breaking. I seek to capture a moment, to preserve a memory of an action, to change the point of view and to allow the body to continue moving.
