Fernando Casasempere is a Chilean ceramic artist, now living in London.
His exhibition A Death at the Parafin Gallery, highlights how we are destroying the planet. Many titles of the exhibited work make links to this notion: geology, tectonic etc.
What was useful?
Casasempere lives and works by his attitude to recycling, reusing as much ceramic matter as possible. He even goes so far as to exhibit some of it.
Process. Casasempere makes the process part of the work itself. Something I have been researching of late too. Does this make the work better?
When talking about his works where modular versions were required, he stated that the quality of one was pointless when compared with the total.
