60x50x50cm - porcelain - mixed medias

Architectural details (stair balustrade) “ripped” away from their environments are translated into porcelain as vulnerable pieces of evidence. These excerpts reflect on the usage by the inhabitants and equally emphasize the void they are extracted from.
Various techniques are later applied to emphasize the joinery of the elements. Either heating the ceramic to be melted in foam or wax, or casting and pushing the elements into plaster or foam... enables the creation of unfamiliar connection points.
