From a single cast
Ceramic art by Danijela Pivašević-Tenner
In her work, sculptor Danijela Pivašević-Tenner (b. 1980) is often inspired by the location where the exhibition is taking place and develops her artworks specifically for the existing situation.
This is also the case with the artistic intervention "Aus einem Guss" (From a single cast) in the Eisenkunstguss Museum. Pivašević-Tenner starts from the theme of everyday culture, which can be found in the museum under the heading "PET of the 19th century". For in the 19th century, everyday objects made of iron were as common as objects made of plastic are today.
Following on from this, the artist shows us the problematic nature of our modern consumer society with her ceramic works shaped like disposable products. Significantly, the titles of her works allude to the amount of rubbish we produce from each of them. The PET bottles are titled "One Million per Minute", the FFP2 masks "Three Million per Minute" and the disposable cup series "320,000 per Hour".
The result of this artistic examination of the themes of the Eisenkunstguss Museum are ceramic objects that may appear familiar to viewers at first glance, but which in their alienation are always surprising and, especially in their interplay and contrast with the works in the permanent exhibition, inspire them to reflect and think further.
