Anni Hagberg – Flux XI, 2021
Combining ceramic materials, waste glazes and assorted found materials, Flux XI exists in the power struggles between maker and material. Each imposing their will upon one another, experimental material interactions are staged within the heat of the kiln to create indeterminate yet interdependent material encounters that subvert the maker's aesthetic intentions.
Anni Hagberg is a Narrm/Melbourne based visual artist working predominantly with ceramic materials and processes. Hagberg’s practice investigates material agency through the ceramic firing process, with a particular interest in combining waste matter and found objects with traditional ceramic components to explore unpredictable material encounters.
It's not just blue
November 24 - January 21
