The ‘Tea Ceremony’ (2020—ongoing) touches on the sacred importance of materials. Anne Büscher invites participants to enjoy tea in tiny hand—blown glass bubbles filled with flowers and engage with the artworks surrounding them.
In this work, both a performance and an experience, the artist investigates how the value of materials in ceremonies and in exhibitions compare to each other. It is a contemporary take on the traditional format of the Japanese tea ceremony where materials take centre stage.
It explores how materials like glass are experienced and valued, finding the contact point between the traditional ceremony and how she sees and uses materials in her work.
Anne Büscher uses various materials, including glass, marble, silver, ceramic, photography, silicon, and stone. She often reaches for design, crafts, and natural sciences in her work. By learning from her international experiences and integrating insights from different fields, Anne constantly changes perspective in her exploration of the potentials of materials. Locating the unknown, the elusive, and the magical qualities hidden in the everyday is what drives her, feeding her inner ambition to gain new insights.
