Frontier #16 by Ako Castuera
32 pages | art book | published by Youth in Decline
A beautiful and captivating new collection of ceramics work by Ako Castuera.
Ako Castuera’s ceramic sculptures combine animal, human, landscape and architectural elements, describing an interwoven profusion of life that calls into question our hierarchically ordered beliefs around human / non-human, animate / inanimate. Her hybrid forms suggest a world of upended borders in which connections to people, place, self and other are vividly expressed in a variety of traditional techniques that often give way to unorthodox applications.
