Clementine Edwards was born in Melbourne, lives in Rotterdam and recently graduated from the Dutch Art Institute. She is currently developing the idea of ‘objects as kin’, which emerges from her research into the material traces of social experience. This thinking expands on her work around complicating the post-traumatic state, which was the basis for her MFA thesis.With its roots in gold and silversmithing, Clementine’s work speaks of the messy, bodily intersection between craft, language and trauma. It materialises, memorialises and extends interpersonal interactions – the personal counters the violence of abstraction – and in so doing asks to be seen as a window onto the some of the structural realities of social organisation.
