Weightlessness - APE-A08
Artist: Celia DEBRAS
Materials: Natural lacquer, wood, cotton
Size: H300mm x W140mm x D160mm
Debras questions the physical, chemical and aesthetic elements in lacquer making and realises her art pieces as a research laboratory; she believes that lacquer must be the essential material within objects or artworks. As the essential material, lacquer creates a harden and stiffen layer and acts as a waterproof or protection to lacquerware or artworks. Furthermore, Debras develops new manufacturing processes to create a contemporary aesthetic for her lacquerwares.
