  Sophia Nuske is an emerging ceramic artist based in Adelaide. Through hand-building replicas, Nuske invites viewers to refocus their attention on common, overlooked objects. By playing with the inherent language of these things, the chains of associated ideas are stretched, creating humorous juxtapositions guided by wordplay. Her subtly altered objects are resituated in the gallery, installed amongst items of the everyday to mimic their original context. Through these installations, Nuske invites viewers to renegotiate their surroundings and how they engage with objects of the everyday.
