About Fusion No 1 & No 2:
"The pieces I make reflect on how we might re-encounter the past through the lens of the present. They are responses to memories, places and spaces. My practice is an attempt to shape time, to make objects that reflect my own identity, in ongoing conversation across time, helping to understand our human desire to create stories about our histories as a means of connection. The works serve as material evidence of continuity, threads linking the past and the future."
About Caz Hildebrand
Caz Hildebrand’s practice is concerned with temporality, seeking to make connections between the past, the present and the future, exploring the intersection between archaeology, architecture and art.
“My practice is an attempt to shape time, to rebuild and repair, using a vocabulary of geometric forms that can be arranged in multiple compositions, as a way of creating my own lexicon with which to reflect upon my experience and identity.”
Caz works mainly with clay, using various techniques and processes, including slab- building, slip casting and press moulding. She also works with glass, metal, plaster and stone. Each of these materials have powerful associations for her, in embodying both transience and longevity.
Caz’s works reflect her preoccupations with Modernism and Brutalist architecture, connections, manifestations of memory, bereavement, loss and reparation, all set within the context of the urban landscape, which has been intrinsic in shaping her visual world.
Born in London, Caz still lives in the city. She holds a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design from the University of Brighton and a MA in Graphic Design from the Royal College of Art with her experience as a graphic designer helping to inform her current artistic approach. In 2022, she graduated with a MA in Ceramics & Glass from the Royal College of Art. In 2023, her work was exhibited as part of the International Glass & Ceramic Art Biennial 2023, Belgium and Jingdezhen International Ceramic Art Biennale 2023, China.
Caz is currently developing larger scale sculptural projects to encourage audience interaction with her works in site-specific and public realm spaces.
