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...

ECHO BONE 

@STUDIO ONE TOI TU CREATIVE STUDIO RESIDENCY 2018-2019 EXHIBITION






ECHO BONE is interested in rhizomic multiplicity, nomadic transformation and the tentacular. 'Echo' relates both to the natural phenomenon and the Greek myth it inspired. A recent visitor to Teresa Peters' studio aptly described ECHO BONE as a mixture between Mitochondria and Alexandro Jodowrosky's The Holy Mountain 1973. Another described ECHO BONE as a 60s Italian sic-fi space ship. He then proceeded to expound the tale of his recent two month coma, after being hit by a truck in Milan. After which, he awoke in a Fellini meets David Cronenberg film and was to learn that a high percentage of the bones in his body has been replaced with titanium, including his spine. Her works take on the status of totems to question value in the Anthropocene, where tension is rapidly increasing between human activity and the environment.
