Mirka Golden-Hann - Ceramic Artist - Collaborative Work

Choreographed Vessel

This piece was conceived as a collaboration with film maker Mark Bishop, and choreographer Carrie Madgwick. 

It draws upon the ancient Greek concept of Kalokagathia which may be summarised as the harmony between spiritual and physical endeavour. The human form is here depicted on the porcelain bowl in the manner of decoration applied upon a Grecian vessel. Human imagination, always striving for new forms of expression, seeks to combine techniques otherwise distinct from each other. 

In this piece the disciplines of ceramics, choreography and film are brought together. This collaboration allows a furtherance of concepts in the respective disciplines; the decoration is not the applied representation of a scene or event but is actual footage of an event itself projected onto the surface of the vessel. In this way three professionals bring their skills together in a celebration of beauty, skill, knowledge, and creativity.
