Andrea du Chatenier – Eigenleben
15 August – 8 November 2020
The German title of this exhibition, translates to ‘one’s own life’ and refers to these new ceramic works by du Chatenier as having a life and evolution of their own. Eschewing anything resembling a vessel, these elaborate constructions privilege surface and exuberant glazing techniques.
The works were made as a result of two residencies, the first at Guldagergaard’s Ceramic Research Centre in Denmark in 2018 as the winner of the Portage Ceramics Residency Award and more recently as the winner of the Wallace Arts Trust Vermont Award in 2018.
