Description/

Marking Carmen D’Apollonio’s debut presentation in her home country of Switzerland, this presentation includes a large-scale bronze planter from D’Apollonio’s latest body of work, the culmination of a material investigation that has been in development for over two years. D’Apollonio’s process begins with sketching, which she then translates into clay and then to bronze—evolving the three-dimensional form as she goes. “Whatever I want to do, I do,” she states.

Carmen D’Apollonio investigates the entire spectrum from abstraction to figuration through her practice. Self-taught in the ceramics discipline, D’Apollonio’s approach to her acclaimed sculptural lighting and vessels celebrates the fusion of craftsmanship with functionality. “My work is simple; it often gives way to humor. As if clay had its way of being, its own personality,” she explains.

Born in Switzerland in 1973, D’Apollonio previously worked as an art director for short films and commercials in the mid-nineties. In 1996, she began working with the artist Urs Fischer, and assisting him for over a decade. In 2006, she founded the fashion brand Ikou Tschuss (ikou means “let’s go” in Japanese and tschüss is “bye-bye” in Swiss German), which combined modern textiles with traditional artistry. D’Apollonio established her own studio in Los Angeles in 2014.

D’Apollonio’s process begins with sketching, which she then translates into clay—evolving the three-dimensional form as she goes. Her titles such as I Wish You Were Beautiful (2019) or Here Comes the Light (2019) range from the comic to the plaintive and offer narrative fragments entirely in tune with their suggestive, open-ended compositions.

She lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
