BERGEN TIMELINE 2011. GALLERI FORMAT

Curated Group show by Heidi Bjørgan at Galleri Format (KRAFT) Bergen, 28.october- 20.november 2011.

Extracts from catalogue:

Siri Brekke transforms and reproduces already existing porcelain and faience. She seeks for stories that the object itself contains, and aims to connect these to current issues in our present society. By this she gives the found pieces a new understanding and places it in a greater historical and political context. By re-using objects, texts and expressions she creates pieces that links up past and presence. For the exhibition Bergen Timeline 2011 she has reshaped figurines that has been left over in her earlier productions for different reasons. By using fresh clay she gives them new form. Rike Fungus consists of figurines, modelled clay and mosaics. The mosaics is waste material from her own ceramic production.
