Honor Freeman: Ghost objects

Honor Freeman harnesses the reflective qualities of clay through slip casting, creating porcelain moulds that echo their original objects – a memory of a past form – a ghost. Freeman further explores this idea in the residual stories (real and imagined) of objects in the Art Gallery of South Australia’s collection, relating to ritual, mourning, loss and solace. She responds to materials once used to collect tears of the dead while, simultaneously interrogating contemporary everyday materials that dry, wipe away or collect those of the living.
