Memoria100 cups of tea, never to be...
‘Memoria; 100 Cups of Tea, Never To Be…’ highlights the sadness of a beautiful object that has been broken. A shattered gold tea pot lies below while its soul leaves its broken vessel in the form of a swarm of 100 ghostly little winged tea cups. A faint glow from within enhances the ghostly presence of each angelic winged tea cup.
Each little cup is individually cast and assembled in bone china, and then suspended from a single fibre optic strand. The LED light source in concealed within the lightweight ceiling-rose fitting and gives a ghostly cool white glow.
Memoria was an originally an installation sited in the RSA Sculpture Court. I was invited by the City Arts Centre in Edinburgh to develop this piece into a light installation for their ‘Reflection’ exhibition in February 2012, following the work of artists supported by the VACMA award scheme.
