Part of the Lucky 13 exhibition.
Once upon a time, on a far away planet, a lonely astronaut girl was lost.
She didn’t know how long she had been there, and for an untold time she stood there, longing to be found, waiting for something to happen. Yearning to come to light.
Waiting to be again...
Roaming around while time was escaping, on a day unforeseen, her eyes caught the sight of a strange rock.
She lifted up the rock, gently, and dusting off scraps and dust, little by little revealing a ceramic doll of divine creation.
She cared for the magical doll, sang to her and by her whispers she gifted the doll a part of herself, blessed it with a destiny.
The astronaut girl send the doll off into the universe and set her mind to finding more magical rocks and more sculptures.
With every doll she uncovered and every new encounter, the astronaut girl gifted each doll with a special part of herself and saw all of them becoming their true self.
Eventually, after exposing a last 13th doll, the girl was nothing more than a wisp of herself and with the next dust storm, the lonely lost astronaut was scattered into a sparkling pool of nothingness.

About the artist
International artist and sculptor Griet Van den Auwelant uses art as a vital and constant source of pleasure, hope and esse, a way of life.
After exploring multiple art forms, from piano over painting to fashion design, she was drawn back to clay, one of the most natural materials to work with.
Since 2013 Griet is exploring ceramics in different studios in Belgium and Dubai, she plays with texture, discovering and studying clay and pushing the limits of glazes, her work is playful and real, raw and unpretentious.
Griet's imagination comes to live in thematic exhibitions that have been lauded by critics and colleagues.
