Title: Death Visceration
Artist: Taiji Taomote
Carefully sculptured to render some ghastly reveal, in ‘Death Visceration’ the shroud of classicism is seemingly rend in two to reveal its humanity in death; a depredation of the eternal youth and celestial beauty in the image. Tamote’s simple use of white ceramic speaks equally of renaissance sculpture or bone, and the drama and violence of the piece remains offset by a coolness — the stresses and flayed skin merging with thick paste-like layers of textured clay, deployed as a plinth, that allow the form a smoke-like, illusory sensibility.
