Showcase #15: Kirsten Perry

5 Aug 2017 - 22 Oct 2017

Artist statement: I love to investigate the relationship between elements of error, chance, anthropomorphism and humour. Traditionally, errors are discarded or covered up but I like to challenge this aesthetic by highlighting and exaggerating errors, especially through humour. Mould making is central to my ceramic practice. I enjoy the technical challenge of casting objects or textures not usually associated with ceramics, such as paper, plastic and cardboard. This process has the ability to transform the object’s original purpose and allows for serendipitous outcomes. I find unexpected results amusing.
