Simcha Even-Chen
Entrapped 5 by Simcha Even-Chen - porcelain sculpture, red

2022

About the Item

This sculpture is part of the sculptor’s most recent work, in which she uses paper porcelain (porcelain with 0.5% paper fibre added for greater flexibility) to create organic, dynamic and natural shapes. The artist tests the physical limits of the material (its collapse during firing) and plays with the balance between the full and empty spaces created by the shapes. She assembles different pieces to build her sculptures, but because of this process of collapsing, the final result after firing is always open to the unexpected. Colour is an important feature of this sculptural production, likely to elicit an emotional or psychological response from the observer. The linear patterns on the surface follow the viewer’s gaze along the curves, accentuating the soft, light, fluid look of the sculptures.

  • Stand-Ins for Period of Wreckage 25
    By Theaster Gates
    Located in Palm Desert, CA
    A sculpture by Theaster Gates. "Stand-Ins for Period of Wreckage 25" is a contemporary sculpture, white concrete and porcelain by American, Blue Chip artist Theaster Gates. The artwork is unsigned. Theaster Gates' practice includes sculpture, installation, performance and urban interventions that aim to bridge the gap between art and life. Gates works as an artist, curator, urbanist and facilitator and his projects attempt to instigate the creation of cultural communities by acting as catalysts for social engagement that leads to political and spatial change. Gates has described his working method as “critique through collaboration” – often with architects, researchers and performers – to create works that stretch the idea of what we usually understand visual-based practices to be. For his exhibition at Milwaukee Art Museum exhibition in 2010, for example, Gates invited a 250 strong gospel choir into the galleries to sing songs adapted from the inscriptions on pots by the famous 19th century slave and potter 'Dave Drake'. For the 2010 Whitney Biennial, Gates transformed the Whitney’s Sculpture Court with a spare, architectural installation that functioned as a communal gathering space for performances, social engagement, and contemplation. For the duration of the exhibition Gates collaborated with various creative practitioners on a series of 'monastic residencies', holding live events such as the session by Gates' musical ensemble, the Black Monks of Mississippi. In another recent exhibition at Seattle Art Museum, Gates transformed the gallery into an audio archive entitled 'The Listening Room', incorporating a hand-built DJ...
