The Wall 1 & 2

Lauren Joffe

As an immigrant torn between two places of belonging, Lauren Joffe was always homesick and always home. Moments that connect these two homes became meaningful and important. She would see the mists that descend like a wall of white from the mountain or off the sea in Cape Town when she drove along wintery Melbourne roads. The Wall 1 & 2 represent these two sites of belonging, two vessels similar but distinct, separate but more meaningful together.
Lauren Joffe is a ceramic artist who was born in Cape Town and with her family immigrated to Melbourne when she was young. Her development as an artist can be seen as an outgrowth of her personal biography with South Africa, Australia and Japan.
