Eutectic Gallery is proud to announce the showing of Michal Fargo's work from the Else and Moss collection for the first time on the west coast. Michal Fargo’s work explores materiality and the contrast between urban lifestyle and natural inclinations. Her ceramics defy binary oppositions: abstract/ figurative, organic/ artificial, imitation/ interpretation. Deploying subject matter from “cave-man-esque” meat trophies to natural sea coral and sponges, Fargo toys with the human senses. Born in Israel in 1984, Fargo studied ceramic design at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem between 2007 and 2011 before completing her Master’s degree in design in 2014 at the Royal College of Art in London as the recipient of an RCA / Clore-Bezalel scholarship. Fargo’s work is included in private collections and institutions such as the Design Museum Holon, the Materials Library Holon (both in Israel), the Jingdezhen Ceramic Museum in China, and the Shepparton Art Museum in Australia. Her work was recently acquired by the National Museum in Stockholm through the Bengt Julin Foundation. In 2012 Michal Fargo was the recipient of the International Artist in the 2012 Sidney Myer Fund Australian Ceramic Award.
