formations / Agora, 2012

December, 2012

The formations series of 2012 is an ongoing exploration of hybrid processes and ephemeral materiality. Begun with the experimental fusion of blown glass with advanced sand-casting techniques in Scotland in September, the latest instalment of this work-in-progress plays with the transmutation of substance, and embraces the temporality of states of matter. Strangely, the becoming of form is both a constant and fleeting thing to our human senses… as too is the dream state of an unconscious mind, or the geomorphic shifts below our feet.


Lemus Tumus / formations was the outcome of a month-long intensive residency at the atelier of Agora Collective. The works of Emma Lashmar and Elvan Serin each speak of process, materiality and a dialogue with the natural world. This exhibition explored the common ground they share, and the intersection of their respective practices in a common space and time: this winter in Berlin.

Opened Wednesday, December 12th, 7pm… Until Sunday, December 16th, 5pm.


Also the formations / highlands series of sand-cast and blown glass objects, created in a masterclass with Paul Marioni (US) at North Lands Creative Glass, Scotland in September 2012, was partially exhibited at Factory Art, Charlottenburg, Berlin throughout December 2012…
