Primates: Ceramic Sculptures & Artworks by Elena Salmistraro
‘Primates’ is a series of gorgeous ceramic sculptures crafted by Italian artist Elena Salmistraro.
“A collection of vases in fine ceramic, a contemporary reinterpretation of ancient Roman pottery, famous for its typical animist and friendly character, when objects were not inert beings but had their own ‘soul’, the ceramic vases collection Primates is a powerful conceptual reminder that draws our attention to the delicate relationship that exists between man and ape.
The ape is the animal that best evokes man, in the shape of the body, expressions and movements.
This power of similarity to man is what makes it fascinating and what inspired the creation of these vases, whose ‘soul’ is encompassed in the details and colourful textures. They come into our home and seduce us with their vital force.”
