Enjoy a talk at rami by ceramic artist Monika Martykanova covering selected recent projects!
From the beginning of her studies, Monika was interested in figurative porcelain, clear material and shapes. Her inspiration comes from society and her pieces often reflect current times. As she is still student she tries to experiment with material and its form and limits.
One piece, titled Good Mother, is based on a Meissen statue from the 18th century. The name is reunderstood as the mother of the 21st century, a woman who is under societal pressure and should fulfil certain ideals; a mother today who should be multifunctional - taking care of children, going to work, a cook, a cleaning lady, a mistress, an office worker, a secretary…
In her latest piece she is inspired by 3D printing and its combination with traditional and manual production. Instead of using a 3D printer, Monika developed her own technique to manually create a similar effect the the printer. She illustrates the importance of the human element in this time of technology.
A more recent piece comments on circuses and the emotions evoked during discussions and protests against the use of animals in circuses.
Monika also enjoys cooperating with artist from different fields. With Japanese illustrator Saki Matsumoto she has developed a series of hip flasks with underglaze painting, and motifs based on Japanese culture, mythological creatures, ghosts and nature.
