In Memoriam is rooted in the complicated relationships between humans,our fellow animals, and the rest of the natural world. These sculptures investigate the life that resides alongside death, the growth that pushes forth from decay, there silience exhibited by the most fragile of creatures, how the artificial mimics the real as well as the ways in which every moment--living through the sixth extinction--calls for both mourning and celebration.
Bethany Krull is a ceramicist from Buffalo, NY, she earned a BFA from the State University College at Buffalo in 2004 and an MFA from the School for American Crafts at the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2007.
Krull's work explores the complex relationships between humans and other species by envisioning creatures simultaneously adorable and nightmarish, living in absurd conditions that are alternately haunting and darkly humorous, presented with deadpan seriousness.
