Livia Marin, Broken Things, 68 objects, silkscreen on plaster, House of Propellers, London

Livia Marin is a Chilean artist who specialises in large scale installations which appropriate mass produced consumer products. For Broken Things, Marin sculpted everyday objects such as cups, bowls, jars and plates, giving them splits, spillages and cracks. I love the mixture of patterns, which mix the traditional willow pattern motif with the kitsch, retro 1960s inspired patterns and colours.
