Earth Oracles

March 19th - June 25th, 2022

Pondering the meaning and consequences of the multiverse, I seek objects that take me to another world. The artists included in Earth Oracles accept the vastness and possibilities of the universe beyond the known or hidden within the mundane. Rather than fear the unknown, they allow it to inspire an engagement with materials, realities, and histories. They show us transformed worlds of the future and the past and worlds that may co-exist with our own. They tell new versions of the histories we were taught, from perspectives that recentre the margins, allowing justice and inspiration not currently available. They transform the expectations we have of objects by surprising us with perspectives and materials we can’t recognize or place in context, taking us out of our illusion of control over our small space in the galaxy. The works are alternate, not of this world or this version of reality. Form, material, history, and the known universe are all called into question, offering the viewer to enter an alternate modernity

Fierce and Fantastical Experiments in Ceramics

News done by

The ceramics-focused Earth Oracles is a garden of earthly delights, with sumptuous glazes and a mastery of the medium on proud display.

TORONTO — When ceramic artists place their hands in clay, they are echoing an expressive gesture that has been with humanity for some 20,000 years. With all that in mind, you might think there is no new ground for contemporary ceramicists — but, as Earth Oracles proves, nothing could be further from the truth. The group show at Mayten’s features 15 artists, each of whom has taken their ceramic practice in a unique and groundbreaking direction.
