100 Fears

2020, Mask
Ceramic, Glaze

The traditional masks of the Calabrian town of Seminara are intended to chase away evil from the home, dispel fears and gossip with their exaggerated and grotesque features. The masks are finished in enormous wood fired kilns, which adds an uncontrollable twist to the features and colors rendered by the artisan’s hands — the final touch in their fierce and imperfect beauty.

100 Fears

100 FEARS is designed by Object of Common Interest as a beguiling abstraction and interpretation of this archetype. A subtle evocation of a face appears from an accumulation of teardrop-shaped ceramic extrusions, each one signifying a fear, from big to small.

 

Without any orifices puncturing the smooth alien face, these fears merely slide across the outer surface, unable to invade its inner consciousness. 100 FEARS bravely confronts the concerns of the household and puts them out into the open, in order to ward off any threats of harm to the inhabitants.
