    The Cave, 2014

    Stucco and glazed ceramics

    variable

    Nestled in the park’s more bucolic section, Lau’s dense, textured ceramics transform a cobblestone stage and flowering archway into an otherworldly alter. The Cave – an intimate and eerie semi-architectural form – is an ethereal womb-like structure, coated in fragile ceramic stalactites that sprout like crystal fingers from all sides, evoking a fossilized cave from a mystical realm.

    Miniature ceramic forms encircle the main totem and run up the cobblestones like enigmatic animals or ritualistic remnants in an alternate sci-fi world that Lau has handcrafted. Her overall installation is simultaneously recognizable and unique, recalling organic elements and alerting us to potential alien compositions.
