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
