Artefacts is a tangible memory of those missing objects, architectural forms and vessels, where the artist’s intentions are not to replicate the looted pieces but draw from them mnemonically. These presented objects are small enough to be held but are not embraceable, with their colour schemes recalling those resplendent, cultural vessels encountered in childhood.
