IRENIC Almost

Birgit always uses existing materials, shapes and objets trouvés in her work.

During her artist-in-residence in China, she found a specific vase among hundreds of different existing shapes and molds. Inspired by this shape, she developed a vase together with the experts from Cor Unum. This gave rise to the 'Irenic' series . Irenic: aiming at peace (comes from the Greek word 'eirene', peace)

Making ceramics is a craft and one of the oldest art forms in the world. The first painted and decorated vases from well before our era give us an idea of ​​daily life at that time. The fact that we have this knowledge is due to the almost indestructible nature of pottery. It may break into shards, but it will survive the test of time. It can withstand the elements and the harshest conditions. What if our current pottery turns up at an archaeological site hundreds of years from now? So what will future generations learn about us? In the series ' Irenic' contemporary, personal and social issues are both title and artwork.
