In my ceramic art practise, I use abstraction, minimalism and multiplicity to create large-scale sculptures, and multi-component installations. This exhibition draws on research in anti-colonial, anti-capitalist feminist scholarship for creative inquiry about Erasure: the act of causing a feeling, memory, or period of time to be completely forgotten. In this project, I use abstraction to contemplate and unsettle the nature of erasure, both personally and societally: the impact of historical and current omission, eradication, deletion, devaluation, obliteration; and the collective responsibility to remember, to learn, to assert. The installations in the exhibition are interactive, inviting the viewer to move components; to walk around, under and through; to sit, wonder, respond, and co-create.
