Ronit Baranga’s Anatomical Tableware Disturbs Teatime

by | 13th, July 2017

Israeli artist Ronit Baranga creates the kind of intriguing objects future generations will look at and love. She says her work lingers on the “border between living and still life”. She adds of her anthropomorphic tableware: “The useful, passive, tableware can now be perceived as an active object, aware of itself and its surroundings – responding to it. It does not allow to be taken for granted, to be used. It decides on its own how to behave in the situation.” Your fingers and mouths are now part of the plates, cups and pots. Ronit’s tea party is a lot of fun. Tea on fine china needn’t be just for tall, blond smiling Aryans with gorgeously rounded vowels and dial-up smiles, but a sinister, creeping unnerving treat for those of you who suspect the unexpected and wonder if things bite back.
