You & I Are Earth
"Clay is used in virtually all cultures in every conceivable manner from fulfilling our basic needs to demonstrating our highest aspiration – it is a truly democratic material."
In the exhibition You & I Are Earth Erickson explores the ceramic medium as a record of human experience embodied in the objects of our lives, from those we discard to what we cherish, revere and protect. Themes of race culture and social justice in Erickson's 21st century narratives provide a provocative lens within the intimate context of an 18th century family and household to reflect on our present historical moment.
