My grandmother's plate

My Grandmother's Plate is a video-work presenting a dialogue between me and my late grandmother, between her aesthetics of old Europe , delicate and refined, and my practice as a ceramicist who uses her medium to explore texture and contrasts.

Mixing past and present, fired porcelain and raw stoneware to create a non-invasive dialogue between her laboring in the kitchen to feed her family, and my laboring in the studio to feed my own personal hunger.

The video projection enables a dialogue that is taking place over various plains – the present vs. the past, the fired ceramics vs. the raw stoneware and the concrete vs. the ephemeral, sometimes they touch, while on other occasions they coexist in parallel.
