Maria Kulikovskas's "Table of Negotiations," 2022, beautiful and scary at the same time, consists of single plates made of clay, formed from her casted body parts and covered with colored glaze, was shown at Francisco Carolinum, Linz.
Her series of "Painted Plates and Cutlery" expresses dairy-like, in watercolor style, the experiences she went through during the war since March 2022 in her stay as an artist in residence at OÖ Landes-Kultur GmbH and AoCG till September 2022.
This is what Maria added:
I/we made very important (for me) art works during very heavy, dark and very unstable time. At the end of my experiments at the Academy my new work "table of negotiations", I am very thankful that despite all personal difficulties I went through with the pleasure of having a baby, the time of experience and experiments with ceramic was a gift from my destiny.
It is a true act of art for better changes, when art community and cultural institutions support artists in their own ideas and with passion, help and with technical knowledge, then in the end we all have something new.
