On The Edge Of Fluidity

"On the Edge of Fluidity" is an installation that explores the sculptural dynamics between water and clay. A number of unfired cone-shaped clay sculptures are submerged into artificial water ponds, slowly disintegrating. The audience is invited to contemplate this slow decaying process.


My inspiration stemmed from myths about the 'creation of man from clay' and contemporary studies on body decomposition in water conducted in so called 'body farms.'


Contemplating the transient nature of human existence and the afterlife, I intentionally combined unfired clay with liquid, aiming to produce a poetic and performative sculpture that reflects on the concepts of matter, time, and decay.
