Light Pottery
as part of a Family Relics project
ongoing since 2018




Matter is not static. The matter of this project is the outcome of the time-space relationship. The presented vessels were created by hand on a traditional potter wheel. In stead of clay, water and heat they were made of light, time and photographic freeze. Though nobody could ever witness these forms with a naked eye, their documentation is shown here.

The displayed images are the studies executed as a preparation for a work dedicated to the forever lost family relics — the vessels which are anonymously present in my family's albums at the most meaningful moments of our history but were not valued and saved. My intention is to photographically restore those artifacts.
