Caroline Slotte plays with perception with wood objects

Caroline Slotte created the series ‘One-to-One’, that plays with perception gathering wood objects confused with a wooden background.

This series features a set of objects that are supposed to look like two things at once or rather two materials at once. We simultaneously recognize the objects as plastic, metal or paper and wood— an impossibility that plays with our perception.

The tensions between the recognizable and the enigmatic, the ordinary and the unexpected are recurring thematic concerns in Caroline Slotte’s artistic work. Some of the recent explorations like the ‘One-to-One’ series depart from an interest in material perception and material recognition, teasing out situations where the initial visual identification fails resulting in an unsettling state of material confusion.

Slotte holds an MA in Ceramics from Bergen Academy of Art and Design, Norway, in addition to education from Denmark and Finland.

The reworking of second hand objects play a pivotal role in Caroline Slotte´s practice. She manipulates found materials, primarily ceramic everyday items, so that they take on new meanings. The tensions between the recognizable and the enigmatic, the ordinary and the unexpected are recurring thematic concerns. More recent explorations reveal an expanded interest in material perception and material recognition, teasing out situations where the initial visual identification fails resulting in an unsettling state of material confusion. Demonstrating an engaged sensitivity towards the associations, memories and narratives inherent in the objects, Slotte´s intricate physical interventions allows us to see things we would otherwise not have seen.
