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.

disastrousforms.com/Info ︎

DISASTROUSFORMS.COM 2020, is a body of ceramic and clay artefacts from a faux sci-fi disaster, archived on an online platform - exploring natural disasters, natural history and archiving. Disaster as the mother of revolution . This project was inspired by a field trip to Pompeii with Mark Dion and team, Auckland Museum’s Natural History Collections Online, (where it is archived as a topic) and was made in curatorial conversation with Dina Jezdic. It launched on the Auckland Live Digital Stage in Feb 2021 and was made with the support of Creative New Zealand. An ode to the ceramics and cosmic post disaster revolutions of Lucio Fontana - navigating our environment as we become ground zero. From volcanoes, corals, and fossils to the quartz in your mobile phone, exploring collections to collective consciousness. As Walter Benjamin observed, collections are never finished.

DISASTROUSFORMS.COM is a nomadic exhibition, navigating the city of Auckland, Auckland Museum and the interwebs,  culminating in a special audio-visual event March 24 2021. Auckland Live Digital Stage Aotea Square.

This project was created in conversation & curatorial collaboration with Dina Jezdic.Her essay A MUSEUM PORTAL FOR A PANDEMIC AESTHETIC and DISASTROUSFORMS.COM  are archived as a topic at Auckland Museum Collections Online.

This project was made with the support of Creative New Zealand and Auckland Live.
