Extremely well-known throughout Norway, Irene Nordli is a ceramist from a generation of conceptual artists who have reconsidered popular Nordic art. Based on classical porcelain codes and inspired by traditional characters, she invents new silhouettes; her pieces, which can be in the form of collages of parts of the human body, are often quite disturbing. Whether they are mat or glossy, they always unveil the sensuality of clay.
