Shift: to move or cause to move; a slight change in position, direction, or tendency

With participative and repositional works in clay and wood, Shift takes inspiration from China, and human traces imprinted on the land. The wooden blades take their form from stone age ceremonial jade blades, while the hollow ceramic forms evoke both weathered river stones, and clay vessels.

Shift is part of Danger, an emerging four-part series of studio and environmental installations exploring the sense of precarious resilience with which humans relate to physical environments and to each other around the globe. Each installation -Stasis (Iceland), Shift (China), Power (Istanbul), Collapse (New Mexico)- considers a distinct geopolitical location, focusing on different materials and modes of audience interactions.
