For the second edition of our Artist in Residence series, an ongoing collaboration between Showroom-X and Saint Cloche, we introduce Tatsiana Shevarenkova. Tatsiana Shevarenkova is a Sydney based artist who creates dramatic yet utilitarian objects through a range of throwing and hand-building techniques. Tatsiana grew up in a little town called Pinsk in Belarus and holds loving memories of running through beautiful wheat fields, playing with neighbours till dark, harvesting ripe cucumbers and berries from her grandma’s yard, and secretly rescuing stray cats. After building a career as a fashion stylist in Moscow, Tatsiana moved to Australia and explored her curiosity of more tactile mediums. As a self-taught artist, Tatsiana founded Cosset Ceramics and, moved by the biomorphic sculptors of the mid 20th Century, she began to explore sculptural forms. She is inspired by the motherly figures of Noguchi and Jean Arp. Her continuous series of planters, titled The Muses, reveres the beauty of Renaissance art, where the female body is presented as natural and charming. Imagery by Jacqui Turk
