The exhibition MUTA by Daniela Bergschneider presents a world of hybrid organisms, consisting of hand shaped porcelain elements that are trapped between a soft and flexible fabric.
While the porcelain resembles the presence of bone and joints, the textile creates the skin of the sculptures. Like prehistoric creatures they seem to have no internal organs, no flesh, only skin and bone, skin and stone.
Build from a multiplicity of elements the works suggest the possibility of growth and movement, but in a very slow and internal way. It’s a possibility that may be in the past or even the future and that places them between fossils and living beings.
The tactile quality of the works invites you to come closer, to touch and at the same time to keep a distance, in an intermittent game between attraction and repulsion.
The production of this exhibition is supported by Kulturrådet.
