Podcast #9

Teresa Solar

10-01-2022

1646 sat down with Teresa Solar for a chat about her exhibition BIG MOUTH. WITHIN BOUNDARIES. OOZING OUT., her practice, and network of thought behind it. In this podcast, we discuss oozing elements, the magical interplay between the artist and her clay, foreigner sculptures, but also language and limits.

Teresa Solar’s imaginary is based on the morphology of speech and, by extension, of thought. Morphology is the study of words and how they are formed. Concepts like resistance, insulation, tightness and immunity are developed through a multidisciplinary production focused on sculpture and drawing, sprouting multi-layered narratives. Throat, pore, hatch, tongue, pipe — her pieces are populated with connotations of connectivity and flow. Hers is a practice full of words and full of organs that create words: a talkative work that doubts itself but nevertheless wants to talk.
