SETAREH Berlin is pleased to present the first solo show by Parisian artist Elsa Sahal in Germany.

Dive into Female Factory, where the clay and the flesh, the body and the ceramics become one. Sensual, obscene, bordering on the grotesque, the substance flows like lava, constantly redefined by a logic of its own. Elsa Sahal approaches the history of the sculpture, erectile because essentially male, with the gauge of feminism guided by the principles of horizontality and chaos. The nauseating malleability of bodies becomes the wellspring of new fluid corporeality: emancipated from any standard, crossed by the incandescence of their desires and the permanent excitement of an elsewhere.

While Elsa Sahal may be re-enacting the act of creation, her work is in no way governed by some spiritualizing intent preoccupied with a quest for sanctified origins. In fact, by using ceramics—this domestic art form largely ignored by the history of art—Elsa Sahal prosaically reconnects with the wretched, earthly and feminine face of the human condition, while disassociating herself from a representation of man as a spiritual being and the cause of an array of toxic oppressions—social, environmental, racial, and gender- based—since the Enlightenment.
