The only constant is change
In the ocean capsules exist. Capsules where artifacts have been concealed throughout centuries. Here time exists on other premises, as artifacts do not perish on the same condition as on land.
Ceramic is a material that moves towards the imperishable. The only constant is change consists of 2 large ceramic vessels. Each vessel contains a series of sculptures, all of which are fragments of various ornaments. Ornaments are highly associative artifacts and have recurred continuously. The sculptures can be read as the narratives we carry with us through artifacts.
The installation shows a reflection on time and what significance the perception of time has for our and artifacts’ existence. Most artifacts will outlive us. Each artifact depicts a narrative about us. The imperishable and perishable are seen as each other’s opposites, but maybe they can also exist in symbiosis.
