Carina Paoletti

The vessels Carina Paoletti created during her residency at EKWC make you feel like dancing. The intuitively built sculptures are full of movement, they twist and turn and throb with exciting rhythms. Sparsely glazed, the works delve deep into the soul of Brazil, where music and dance are such a natural part of daily life. But its significance goes way beyond joy or pleasure: from Brazil’s colonial era to the present, dance has always been connected with resistance and identity. The surface of the vessels clearly carries the marks of making, traces of fingertips, a sense of carving, beating the clay into shape.
