Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

There are two kinds of objects. The clean ones and the ones hard to find. The loved ones and the neglected ones. The preserved ones and those on the shelf or underground. On the other hand, being loved means the increased possibility of irreparable damage and destruction, while the decline of appreciation might provide protection from history. The remains of ancient Pompeii, the Babylonian Ishtar Gate, and the Rosetta Stone were only preserved because there came one moment when nobody thought they were important anymore. Let’s take a flower vase for example. What is a lifespan of such chinaware? Fifty years? Maybe a hundred? Five hundred? Surviving all these generations means protection from this invisible layer of aging, forgetting, and being lost: dust. I know it. Until I come, that is. I’m a dust collector. I have bags of dust at home. So much that I sometimes forget where I got them from and they just lay there getting extended by newer and newer layers. To me they are the same as the porcelain they cover – little pieces of abstract memory.
