EXHIBITIONS    KATH FRIES: Decant

07.12.14 to 03.01.15

Decant explores the fragile containment of memory and notions of loss, poetically reflected in the residue and trace of pouring water. This process-based project involved replicating two Chinese ceramic ewers, from the Fairfield Museum collection, as metaphorical containers of memories and histories. This sentiment resonated in my Decant process, as I cast and recreated the ewers into a series of replicas and delicate shards - intentionally keeping them unfired, fragile, dissected, semi-dissolved then further eroding them with pouring water. These broken and unstable ceramic objects and shards will continue to visibly break down over time.
