Victoria Günzler

Victoria Günzler (b. 1986) is a Norwegian artist with ceramics as her primary medium. Her work often refers to objects of use. The hierarchy of values that apply to objects and visual expressions interest her. She describes trying to address the concept of «use» in relation to art production. Her work often demonstrates the unique and inherent qualities of clay and ceramics.

Günzler have an interdisciplinary approach and position herself and her work in different contexts and constellations. She describes collaboration as a method, a catalyst in her own practise.

She explores the potential for information and recognition which lies in the material, how clay and ceramics can make us understand and read ourselves into the profound processes of change our planet is undergoing. She describes trying to process how we through time have perceived and recreated nature and how that can materialize today and in the future.
