Ballroom Project Antwerp, art fair with Gallery Caroline O'Breen, B,
Ceramic: Equinox figurines, Amsterdam 2021, with a 24 karat gold glaze. This new series was created in her studio in Amsterdam at the time of the last on March 20th 2021. While experiencing the lockdowns Antoinette Nausikaä got inspired by the continuous cycle of the sun and the transitions of the seasons throughout the year. These transitions are marked by the solstices and equinoxes. The spring equinox is a moment in the year when the sun is exactly above the equator and day and night are perfectly balanced in equal length. Throughout history, they have been celebrated with rituals and ceremonies. During these specific sacred moments, as a kind of ritual and a personal ode to the light, Antoinette Nausikaä retreats into her studio with a lump of clay to make the sculptures.
