Pfeiffer’s work is a symbiotic practice of ceramics and black & white photography. The ceramic sculptures are vessels, figurative and abstract objects. Made with different techniques and both glazed and unglazed. The ceramic objects are often echoes of utilitarian objects or a replacing the action of the body, with a strong connection to art history. The photographs are staged in the artist’s studio and incorporate the remains and evidence of the process of making ceramics, often against a painted backdrop that creates a fictitious depth and architectural space. Taken with a long shutter speed, they record the artist’s motion, as she moves through the frame moving light sources and objects to produce light trails and duplication.

Julia Pfeiffer lives and works in Berlin, after studying at Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe. Recent exhibitions have included NADA Miami 2012, Desaga Gallery, Cologne and Horse, Berlin. ‘Figures of the Thinkable’ is her second solo exhibition at Maria Stenfors.
