Alexandra Standen: Considerate Touch

June 23, 2021 - July 10, 2021

Courtesy: the artist and THIS IS NO FANTASY, Melbourne.

“Can I touch it?” is a question I hear a lot when people enter my studio. Sometimes they don’t even ask, it’s more of a magnetic pull from their hand to the curve of the form. I can see in their eyes that feeling the cold smooth clay is quite comforting and familiar and with big bellies and slender necks I guess these ceramic forms really do speak to a human form. I like how considered and gentle people are when they place their hand on the ceramic vessel almost like they expect to feel a heart beat or a vibration. There is a fragility of movement and ritual performance that seems to facilitate mindful awareness in that touch. While this body of work was not made for any specific ritual performance I like to think it has activated one.
