In coming together, ceramic artist Sarah Nedovic and art director Stephanie Stamatis explore the geological and anthropological ties connecting us to the village. The exhibition explores two essential, interrelated components: nostalgic memories from the land and conversations at the long table.

Inspired by Brutalist Spomenik Monuments, Nedovic interprets the beauty of bold formations of nostalgic memories from the land into her own illuminating sculptures. The legacy of a bygone era, these unorthodox and unusual forms are explored through their scale and repetitive use of pattern to create an aesthetic that captures the desire for an optimistic future, overlaid by Nedovic’s signature abstract and refined forms in design. The construction employs lost forms of hand building and firing techniques in the hope to preserve ancient techniques for generations to come.

The conversations at the long table exhibition celebrates and captures the beauty and simplicity of village lifestyle – a drawn out meal, a class in the lost arts, storytelling. The opportunity to share information and connect with people in the community. Stamatis will host a dinner event drawing from her own first- generation experience of being from an immigrant family through food and tradition. Stamatis has also collaborated with Nedovic and team to create usable artefacts for meals at the long table.


SARAH NEDOVIC, Ceramic Artist

Drawing inspiration from shapes, patterns and figurative sculpture, and with a background in textile design, the studio practice of Melbourne based ceramic artist Sarah Nedovic is grounded in a love of natural materials and a passion for purpose and practicality.


Exploring the intersection of food and still life, Stephanie’s story telling pulls from nostalgia and objet as historical documents unfurling the medium to a reverence of the daily, poetic and surreal.
