 “Grace Esther Gittelman explores their Korean and Jewish non-binary identity through hybridized Korean ceramics.

Through creating ceramic pillows of their pets, the artist navigates what makes something or someone authentically Korean? They navigate the complexity of their identity and the way they are perceived by challenging the value and concept of authenticity through the most intuitive forms, materiality, and food. Gittelman references these archetypes of food and folklore from their childhood to create their own mythology about their experience of being a minority within a minority.”
