Fair Art Fair x The Auction Collective (7/61)


This sculptural lighting piece was created for a group show ‘Unfamiliar Forms’ which was in partnership with this years London Design Festival.

Surrounded by buckets of PVA glue and stacks of newspapers, Emmely Elgersma uses her studio like a surreal kitchen, concocting wonky sculptures and wobbly objects that look good enough to eat (but probably don't taste very good). Creating clay from kitchen products and papier-mâché out of household chemicals, Elgersma's work is rooted in her formal training as a ceramicist, just with a couple of jokes thrown in. The result is an exploration of what vessels mean to us as human beings, like those old Roman pots they keep digging out of holes in Wiltshire but bright pink or baby blue, and full of the heady power of everyday emotions, like the memory of winning the World Cup in 1966 or drinking afternoon tea with your nan.
