Teresa Peters is an artist and filmmaker based in Tamaki Makaurau, currently working in clay and ceramics, photography and moving image. She is interested in bodies, earth bodies, forming and transforming. Chemical compounds and molten entities, in intimate combustion. ‘Excavating’ primordial totems’, as we move on into the sixth mass extinction. Ceramics is alchemy. Earth, water, air… fire...

Teresa Peters, ‘DISASTROUSFORMS.COM - Artefact No.1’, Raw clay archived as a framed photograph, 700mm x 700 mm, Edition of 12, 2020 @aotearoaartfairTeresa Peters’ Disastrous Forms ‘explore disaster as the mother of revolution.’ Riffing on tropes of archeology and anthropology, her ‘primordial’ clay pieces could be faux-artifacts. It’s easy to imagine these heat-forged curiosities being excavated at some distant point in the future. Her works trace the rehabilitative potential of forms emerging from mata o Papatūānuku, Earth’s surface, through the unstable lottery of making and firing.’ Excerpt from ‘Threads For Lost Mothers, or how she gained a Masters of Economics’ by Hanna Scott. @teresapetersstudio #hannascott @mothermother_archive
