Collective + Clay = Länk
LÄNK is a collective exhibition of the ceramicists active in Artibus' workshops. It is a result of the great breadth and diversity that is represented both in those who create there and in the material they work with.
Connection, ring, loop, hook, bridge, part of a chain
LÄNK - something that could be a part of a chain, a bridge span, a connection between two pieces and/or elements. In a time of physical distance, many think of video links, used to maintain contact. The ceramicists will create upon the theme LÄNK and create individual pieces, but also collaborative pieces where the ceramicists will work together to create.
With different techniques and manners, but in a common starting point, each potter interprets the idea of “link”. Is it functional, sculptural or conceptual? Does this have a political or societal significance? Is it a more symbolic content; around a ritual, mood or emotion? Is it a connection, a ring, a bridge, a part of a chain…?
