The Skulking Visitor

Qi Fang Colbert The Skulking Visitor


Product description

One of the ‘Whatever Vases’ to add cuttings from the garden into the holes so they become part of the narrative. The vase tells a story of a transforming identity with free-hand carved and inlaid figures, coloured with underglaze.

On one side, the pot shows the reversed power between humans and nature, woman and man in a playful way. The cage-like dress opens up to allow lifeforms to escape secretly, while being gazed, peeked and watched by a face through a little window. There’s a hidden boundary between the two sides, giving another depths of the imagined story space through the little window into the hollow pot. The beast face also leads your mind to the figure on the back, where the vase represents the human-nature relationship in a quirky way where ‘people’ play at being a beast by wearing a costume. The fence between you and the rooster question where you are: ‘are you standing outside the cage to watch what’s happening?’ or ‘is the giant rooster standing outside watching you as a captive inside’. You are invited to see the possibilities of the reversed relationship of humans and nature: the dominant and the subjected.
