Broken Things

Livia Marin's exhibition, Broken Things at House of Propellers is her first solo exhibition in the UK. The Chilean artist takes on a process-oriented approach of mass-produced and mass-consumed, everyday objects ranging from cups, bowls, jars and plates. She also uses a printed 'Willow Pattern' that are copied from the hand-painted Chinese porcelain. As she describes, "I see my work as situated in a more formal Minimalist agenda. Equally, however, I would want to extend that agenda to include the more 'impure' aspects of things that have been handled and used bearing a trace of a social history."
