I Thirst, 2016


White clay, glaze, gold lacquer, water, plywood, white paint, engraving tracery

The work reflects on the concept of human values and their expression through an individual art object. It tries to figure out the primal element and motive of creativity. The aim of the work is to discover the inner desire/thirst of the author’s heart and explore her own scale of values. The work addresses the abundance of things and their worship. It embodies the present-day situation – fetishism, human attachment to things, lack of essence and spirituality, and the confinement of the human heart in walls, shells, and shiny shapes of things.
