Intro
Imperfection Please is a state of mind, a concept, and not just a theme for a collection of work. Its core consists of experimentation, venturing into new territory, focusing on the process and not getting disappointed because an expected goal is not achieved.

Artist list

Sebastian Buescher
I weave myself into my work, quite literally, with blood, sweat and tears. Reality is being stripped, layer by layer, bit by bit, deconstructed ruthlessly and indefinitely. What you see is no longer what you get and the pristine exterior is a mere paper mask for the fleshy, raw world that slumbers beneath, waiting to be discovered, waiting to be set free.

Imperfection Please is a state of mind, a concept, and not just a theme for a collection of work. Its core consists of experimentation, venturing into new territory, focusing on the process and not getting disappointed because an expected goal is not achieved. And while perfection aims to be perfect, a dangerous game that is destined to fail, imperfection is freedom, completely and totally, unique and unexpected. It is about doing things differently and not conforming to existing standards. Each jewel becomes a fragile reminder that sometimes we can break, that sometimes we cannot pull ourselves together and that sometimes we feel utterly flawed, totally imperfect, in a world that bombards us with images of perfection.

The work plays with ancient relics, ritualistic jewellery, natural processes and absurdity. This is my formula for making work; it makes me want to work. My fascination with ceramics has also grown on this journey, primarily because it felt like the perfect material for the expression of my imperfect ideas. What intrigues me with this material, in combination with jewellery, is that there is a potential expiration date that can, if the jewel is mishandled, come true quite easily. The wearing becomes a ritual, the ritual of awareness, reminding us that sometimes we can break, and that, if we do break, we need to pick ourselves up again and move beyond it.
