Emilie Bobek (DK) Dream a little dream - Sycamore Tree (2021)

Dream a little dream - Sycamore Tree (2021) is a series of works that explores the phenomena of delusion. The work includes a series of different ceramic objects made from distorted and modified molds of everyday-objects. Delusion is used as a starting point to generate different sculptural movements and deformations. The collapsed and deformed shapes animate the objects and suggest different narratives. Creating and using the molds in unconventional ways is a constant balance between control and chaos where the creative process mirrors the psychological process. (artist's own description)

Fired clay. 16x33x35 cm

About the artist: Emilie Bobek (b. 1990) graduated from Gerrit Rietveld Academy School of Fine Arts and Design, NL In her practice Emilie Bobek investigates the medium of clay to create her sculptures. By using its qualities to imitate, join, deform, color, and shape she explores the relations and perception of everyday objects. The sculptures all carry personal experiences and memories that appear to us as movements, fragments, dreams. (artist's own description)

Emilie Bobek will be exhibiting two works at the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2022. The second work was created in collaboration with Josephine Rán Andredottir (DK).
