Charlotte Cornaton is best known for her interrogation of contemporary femininity, vanity, and Eastern spiritual traditions in a practice that freely overlaps video art, performance, and sculpture. Her most recent series of works, "Insomnia," was created in the historic porcelain workshops of Jingdezhen, China. While she worked with traditional techniques—engraving the porcelain with a celadon glaze, painting it using cobalt calligraphy, and drawing with cloisonné glaze—the resulting pieces are thoroughly modernized through their reference to the dream interpretation of Carl Jung. Cornaton also creates “Chakra” sculptures from ceramic and glass vases that resemble natural crystals and minerals. In Hindu metaphysical traditions, chakras are meeting points in the flow of spiritual energy around the body; these small sculptures are translations of her overriding concerns with the body into a spiritual context.
