Summary note
Form is simultaneously made and unmade in the work of British artist Rachel Kneebone, whose enigmatic porcelain sculptures depict fragments of the human body melting and merging in constant fluid movement. Working in white porcelain, a material that reacts sensitively to light, she creates shapes that evoke opposing states, appearing to be not only heavy and solid but also light, fragmentary and soft. Her sculptures have a choreographic quality, with torsos and limbs multiplying and fusing in organic arcs of motion. Kneebone's work is a meditation on humanity, the cycle of life, metamorphosis and renewal. Everything exists in a constant state of flux: the fanciful whimsy of Rococo overlaps and merges with crisis-ridden modern times, while the future mutates into Renaissance optimism. 'Interwoven' marks Kneebone's debut exhibition in Finland. Exhibition: Serlachius Museum, Gösta, Mänttä, Finland (24.10.2020-18.4.2021)
