HESTIA’s HEART / triptych, photography / Alu-Dibond
106cm x 80 cm / 2022

Hestia’s heart is a tribute to home, family and domesticity condensed into a human heart-shaped piece of clay brick. Attributing her personal relic to the specific plasticity of orange clay enhances the degree of association with the habitat within the local context. 
The sentimental symbolism is depicted in obscuring the tangible differences through a delicate merging of a raw-material heart tenderly positioned in close proximity to a real one.
