Sofia Solamente + Yulia Skogoreva “Nature of Change”
Ends in 41 days
“Nature of Change” is the most recent work of Mexican ceramic artist Sofia Solamente in collaboration with photographer Yulia Skogoreva. The exhibition is October 15, 2020 - January 15, 2021, at THE KNOT TOKYO Shinjuku 2F GALLERY.
For this exhibition, Sofia and Yulia, both Tokyo-based but with different cultural backgrounds, explore the depths of change and the nature of movement through the unique ceramic pieces and a photographic study, to reflect fragility, beauty, and strength.
The project centers around a philosophical and poetic form of transformation that has been in focus during the challenging times we recently faced as society and individuals. Physical and emotional isolation, the need for meaningful connections, and the feeling of hopelessness are reconstructed as ceramic forms and shapes accompanied by a visual photographic study.
The artists have explored various ways of connecting through movement. Movement of the body, that of the spinning of the ceramic wheel and the ancient craft of the pottery master, and movement of the camera capturing new symbolic meanings.
The elegant nature of the shapes of the objects combined with the flow of a dancer captured on film, creates an ephemeral marriage of movements raising awareness of the body in a poetic manner.
