SRABANI GHOSH (GB)
Text written by GHA
London based, Indian artist, Srabani Ghosh creates large, monochrome ceramic objects, sometimes combined with other materials as in the Freedom Flight’s series.
One of these works, ‘’Melisende’’, can be traced to the queen of Jerusalem in the 12th century. In German etymology the name means strong in work.
Melisende, through her strength, has transformed her fetters into girders that allow her to gather and harness her energy to face the unfolding storm.
Ghosh’s series Freedom’s Flight is composed of twelve glazed coiled ceramic works evoking human bodies used by the artist as a medium to express intimate themes.
The elegant decoration, with its blue and white forms and lines, instantly seduces the observer. All objects present Ghosh’s subconscious memories when the artist explores human sensitivity. Especially during the Pandemic period, when personal spaces and freedom were denied.
