Yen Qin – 'Temporal Echoes', 2023
In her 'Faux Celadon' works, Georgina Yen Qin Lee draws on the history of Chinese celadon ceramics to explore emotional landscapes of diaspora and a pursuit to connect with her heritage that is simultaneously intimate and elusive. The forms, while attempting to echo the form and grace of their ancient predecessors, carry an undercurrent of modern day tension, wrestling with the complexities of cultural memory. The work embodies futility and longing that a company Lee's journey to connect with lost lineage. In the endeavour to grasp the past, the work highlights the spaces where the intangible slips away, offering a testament to both remembrance and the passage of time and cultural distance.
The works are sold as a pair, inclusive of the stand.
