Ak Jansen
Medium Abstract Ceramic Sculpture with Fiber: 'Stephanie'

2020

$2,500

About

This is part of a new collection work that encompasses ceramics and textiles by Ak Jansen. Born in the Netherlands, Jansen’s work occupies queerness on both poetic and political terms, and honors queer community’s ethic of creative self-making. The work is about care and intimate relation; how they manifest, are compelled and sustained. The work is about the nature of bodies - in relation to each other but also to themselves; shifting, in flux, and at times against their own will - transforming. Clay, fiber, needle and thread - Jansen’s works are invested with the history of human hands that meet human needs. Ak Jansen was born in Dongen, The Netherlands, in 1988. He studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven focusing on textile design, material culture, and techniques of fabrication. He works primarily with textile and clay, making art objects that explore different body shapes and hint at organic life - vessels as creatures, quilts that seem to be growing hair. Inspired by Bauhaus design as much as botany, and invested in the manifestations of queer identity, Ak’s work creates its own living world at the intersection of different art forms and creative practices. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
