Edition of 10 individual ceramic pieces
Salvatore Arancio has produced an edition exclusively for Camden Arts Centre, alongside his Ceramics Fellowship 2014-15.
Through a process of mimesis and decontextualisation of unusual natural shapes, these ceramic sculptures expand Arancio’s interest in biomorphic forms. Arancio manipulates and re-invents memories of encounters with geological specimens, transforming them into grotesque and disturbing forms, suggestive of his reflections on natural phenomena.
Arancio’s main interests lie in the potential of images and he works across a range of media such as sculpture, collage, animation and video.
