Children and Fools Exhibition
According to the old adage that gives this exhibition its title, it is in childhood and in madness that we can live free from the demands of productivity. Through this approach, Teresa Estapé seeks to bring us back to a space of openness to question what “doing” means in contemporary Western society. Using a hugely fragile material like talc, (the softest mineral on the Mohs scale), she constructs an array of jewellery that draws on the symbolic baggage of primitive body adornments that limit the possibility for action and emphasise wearability and the act of investiture, forcing us to remain in a preliminary state of indeterminacy that she was already moving towards in her previous work Blandness. Furthermore, the two-dimensional pieces take on the direct power of the materials from which they have been crafted to provoke a tension between duty and will and to recover the possibility of refraining from creating identity and “being nobody”.
