Nomad Patterns*Livia Marin contemporary artist

Nomad Patterns is a unique art collection designed by Chilean artist Livia Marin.

Livia Marin employs everyday objects to enquire into the nature of how we relate to material objects in an era dominated by mass-production, standardization and global circulation. She transforms readymade crockery and alters the placing and scale of their decorative patterns to present a series of undetermined objects that appear paradoxically as broken yet complete.

The contemporary art collection  consists of pieces of ceramic: cups, vases and teapots that melt into puddles, yet retain the original printed patterns.
At the first glance, it seems a expression of destruction. Something like an act of dissolving a complex and unitary artwork. Naturally, after a brief analysis, one gets to understand the true significance of the alluring gesture of “damaging” the objects.

The artist wanted to show that broken china can be beautiful and well, useful. The peculiar liquification  defines the elaborate design.
She does this with techniques and strategies that are characteristic of Sculpture, Installation and Process Art.

When dropping a ceramic plate or cup we’ve all braced for the familiar sound of impact as the object explodes into a multitude of sharp fragments on the kitchen floor. Livia Marin imagines a wholly different demise for ceramic bowls, cups and tea pots in this series of work titled Nomad Patterns.

Each piece seems to melt onto a surface while strangely retaining its original printed pattern. Pieces looks like something that is about to collapse or has just been restored.
