TRULS MÅRTENSSON

︎︎︎ Dylan McCay Urn



The temporality of ceramics is slow. In Truls Mårtensson’s work, this is juxtaposed with the ephemeral qualities of contemporary pop cultural references. In particular, he is interested in fashion, defined by its fast pace and fleeting nature. The shape of the “Dylan McKay Urn references thousand-year old ceramic traditions, while also citing a character from 90’s TV show Beverly Hills 90210. However, the quote was also recently used as a print by French fashion brand Vetements. Thus, through Mårtensson, ceramics and fashion find new an unexpected interconnections with one another.
