COUNTER COLONIAL AESTHETICS

Back in October 2018 I collaborated with Marginal Studio for the final part of their project 'Counter Colonial Aesthetics', in Palermo, Sicily.

 

Counter Colonial Aesthetics is an investigation in Sicilian material culture inviting artisans to collaborate on a participatory platform revolving around the concept of shared heritage and diasporic identities. We experimented ceramic mixtures of clay and local materials such as Cocciopesto, lava stone, and Mammacaura. We focused on their properties and meanings, to give them new functions and values and imagine a contemporary version of Sicilian ceramics.
