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...

Designed by Kalee Jackson & essay by Charlotte Huddleston

RM is excited to invite you to celebrate the launch of From things flow, a publication created as a companion to the exhibition of the same name. The publication includes an essay by Charlotte Huddleston in which she reflects and responds to the exhibition and related events, and texts by the artists Kate van der Drift, Teresa Peters, Shelley Simpson and Kathryn Tulloch.

From things flow is an openly relational project that thinks through things. It is an intentionally haptic engagement of thinking via the process of making, and it is made of acts of conceptual and ontological curiosity. Physically and speculatively engaging with material is a way to experiment, explore, and express something. It is also a way to be in communication with lively non-human bodies. Via the artists’ interest in materiality, processes, and temporality From things flow engages all of our senses: touch, taste, smell, hearing, vision. It also has space for what lies beyond our human senses; for sitting with the potential in ontological indeterminacy to make space for conceptual creation.

Charlotte Huddleston, From things flow

Held at RM in July 2021, From things flow was a collection of works, unravellings, experiences and events that queried the concept of agency both within and without our bodies.

The publication was supported through the RM publication and writing grants.

From things flow will be available to purchase at the launch for $30, cash or online transfer.
