Juana Marta Rodas and Julia Isídrez
Itá ~ Paraguay
Ceramicists Juana Marta Rodas en Julia Isídrez confront the prevailing prejudices which dismiss popular culture as folklore and a collection of exotic curiosities. Their traditional work, which they make in their rural village, has a highly individual aesthetic and expressionistic character. They transform craft into modern art, although it is not their aim to be 'modern' or to consciously seek 'authenticity'.
