Description

"Smell Vessels" is a set of three blown glass vessels created by Josely Carvalho. Each vessel has the capacity to hold one of the artist’s smells. The vessels derived from Carvalho’s collection of glass shards and broken wine glasses as a way to join personal and collective shards of memory, resilience, and shelter. Smell is the first sense we experience- when we take our first breath, we smell. In these works, glass blowing is also an act of breathing, of giving life to organic shapes that then become shelters and nests for smells. Other vessels from this series have been exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro, Harvestworks in New York, and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in São Paulo, Brazil.
