Lauren Herzak-Bauman
January 31 - April 04, 2014

Herzak-Bauman site-specific temporal installations incorporate thousands of porcelain parts, Herzak-Bauman questions and examines the materiality of clay, the production of contemporary ceramics, and her relationship with death and loss.

Herzak-Bauman works with clay to make installations and interventions that are centered on the desire to create a visual language for loss. Herzak-Bauman often uses porcelain for its physicality, translucency, and malleability. Allowing porcelain to warp, bend, crack, and break, in ways that are sometimes considered unwanted, reasserts change and transformation within her work.
