Vereinbarung. Energiemais

INSTALLATION, KERAMIK, 
2022-2023

To feed and energise 8 billion people, agriculture has taken on the role of chef in today's economy. After sugar cane, maize is the second most widely grown crop in the world. The sculpture "Agreement. Energycorn" is made of earthenware, which is classically used for industrial tableware. To create the sculpture, whole corn plants were casted in around 20 different plaster moulds. Waste from industrial agriculture such as corn leaves, roots and stalks were used in the form of ash to create a glaze. During development, the maize plant takes in various elements. Fungicides, herbicides and insecticides also influence the chemical balance of the plants, which appear in ash glaze as brown, green, red impurities. The ceramic sculpture picks up on themes such as globalisation and ecology.
