Jawa El Khash, Replicas, 2022; digital sketch proposal

Replicas is an installation of imagined copies of ancient ceramics. These playful two-dimensional forms reference excavated fragments of so-called Raqqa Ware (attributed to the city of Raqqa, present-day Syria,12th to 13th century). Immersed in a xeriscape garden (the future site of the Joan and Martin Goldfarb Gallery, or GGYU), these forms occupy a space in flux. Jawa El Khash is an artist, researcher, and technologist working around themes of archeology, botany, and world-building. El Khash explores replicas, blurring the line between invisible and visible, real and simulated, fictional and fact.
