Mette Maya Gregersen: Material compositions and reverie, 2016-2019
Trying to define a sense of space and create a connection between internal and external worlds, these pieces of work are an exploration into the daydream and how the unconscious can be materialised through repeated patterns and intuitive gestures in different materials.
Using many different clays and glazes, taken from geological compositions, allow me to work in a semi cyclic way, inspired by the growth formation in nature. Using the making process as a way to enter a world reflected in daydreaming, leaving an insight from the spontaneous nature of mind whilst letting the material change from wet to dry in slow and motion.
According to Bachelard; Reverie helps us inhabit the world.
Reverie is also linked to the intuitive nature of creation, as it serves to hide and to reveal.
A restless celebration of clay material and emotional imagination.
