Mary Jane Evans makes ceramics : Fay Stevens smashes them.

‘Shattered’ is a film work showing in the Disobedient Art exhibition. It documents a performance event in which Fay drops and shatters Mary-Jane’s work.

In their performance ‘re-configured’, Fay and Mary-Jane conducted an archaeological process of classifying and categorising the shattered ceramic pieces which were on display in a cabinet in the exhibition space. Their process, however, was a reconfiguration according to ‘disobedient’ criteria.

At the end of the performance, the ceramic pieces were placed back into the display cabinet in their ‘re-configured’ state.
