Description

With a self-imposed limit of maximum 10 kg clay per object, the shape, volume and size is explored together with a research on how much manipulation clay needs to change the visual perception of the object – from one form to another.

The main thought and desire around this current work is made to be perceived as a play with gravity, the objects are created and placed in a nervous balance point that gives the impression that the objects could to fall to the ground or collapse at any moment.
The objects are made upside down by stacking single coils of clay on top of each other and are mended together one by one with one stroke of a finger, dragging the clay downwards on to the coil underneath to create the intricate texture.
When completed the objects are flipped to allow the viewers access to the inside as well as the outside of the object.

No glazes are added, instead there is a use of different types of clay, with a wish to use the natural colors and different characteristics of the clay itself, highlighting the texture and the surface on the inside and outside where smooth meets the coarse.

*All measurements are approximate.

About the designer


Eyvind Solli Andreassen is previously trained as a sheetmetal worker and welder, after 4 years working at a shipyard, he moved from Porsgrunn to Oslo and enrolled at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts where he recived an MFA in Medium and Material based art, A varied academic and vocational background is reflected in a similarly varied use of materials and media, with a focus on bigger installations in wood and sculptures and objects in metal and ceramics. I want to explore shape, volume and size and are searching for how much I have to manipulate clay to change the visual perception of the object - from one form to another. The main thought and desire around my current work is made to be perceived as a play with gravity, the objects are created and placed in a nervous balance point that gives the impression that the objects are about to collapse or fall to the ground at any moment. Both the broken remains of an objected that’s been shattered from falling from a balancing point and the objects that are proudly tiptoeing on the edge of a metal rod or pedestal edge are a constant reminder of this. The object are completely free of glaze and are instead made of different types of clay, with a desire to use the natural colors and different characteristics of the clay itself, highlighting the texture and the surface on the inside and outside where smooth meets the coarse.

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
