Description:

Neuware - Der Künstler Wayne Higby installierte im Sommer 2006 sein Werk EarthCloud im Miller Performing Arts Center an der Universität in Alfred, N.Y. EarthCloud entstand in einem Zeitraum von vier Jahren und ist die weltweit größte Installation in Porzellan. Dieses Werk verkörpert die Vorstellung von einer sinnlich-fühlbar-ätherischen Verschmelzung von Erde, Himmel und Architektur. Das Kunstwerk ist 9 m hoch und 17 m breit und besteht aus über 6.000 Einzelteilen, in einer Größe von etwa 20 x 18 cm. Higby formte aus etwa 18 Tonnen Porzellan alle Einzelteile; jedes ist ein Unikat. Alle Porzellanelemente sind mit einer Seladonglasur versehen und wurden bei 1.300 °C reduzierend gebrannt. Wayne Higby ist einer der wichtigsten und einflussreichsten zeitgenössischen Künstler, die mit dem Material Keramik arbeiten. Mit seinen Interpretationen von Landschaften erzielt er besondere Beachtung. Seit 1973 ist er Professor an der Universität Alfred. In seinem Werk EarthCloud verarbeitet Higby die Geografie, die Geologie und das atmosphärische Licht seiner unmittelbaren Umgebung. 'Erde bedeutet Material, Gewicht und Schwerkraft, ist die fühlbare und sinnliche Matrix des menschlichen Lebens. Wir sind Teil dieser Erde und begrenzt durch unsere physischen Körper. Gleichzeitig sind wir auch Teil des Transzendenten - der nur unserer Vorstellung entspringenden Möglichkeit des Geistes. Wir sind EarthCloud.' (Wayne Higby, 2007) 152 pp. Englisch, Deutsch.

Synopsis: A fascinating documentation of EarthCloud, the world's largest installation in porcelain in the world.

Review: Such lavishly produced books, dedicated to one body of work in ceramic are, unfortunately, rare, which makes this comprehensive account more than welcome, illustrating as it does the versatile qualities of clay in the hands of a skilled artist. The lavish illustrations and thoughtful accounts more than justify the publisher'a care and attention. While, ideally, the scale and detail of EarthCloud can only be fully appreciated by seeing the work in situ, this visual account has the effect of almost convincing us we are there. --Ceramic Review, September/October 2008
