Days of our lives
Sluggish mass of time trickles by. Dip my finger into the mire in order and stir around in the time surrounding me. A movement spreads that can last a day, an hour or the rest of your life. Feel my way around in this constantly present commonplaceness. Behave at random, without plans, suck up fragments of a narrative, resist tradition and squander time on the periphery. Come across symbols and popular stories that are transformed so as to arouse personal associations.
Clay animations and ceramic sculptures are merged in a new version in which both the construction and the illusion are present. The narration utilizes our associations regarding the clay – smear, daub, smudge. The goo drips, slushes forward and pushes on. Beautiful, dirty, natural and disgusting. ‘Days of our lives’ moves between the dreamy state of a fantasy land, everyday escape and kitchen sink realism.
