In his work, Timur Lukas frequently depicts vases that he derives from childhood memories. These vases are synonymous with bodies to him, sharing a neck, a throat, a set of shoulders, legs and muscular arms. At the same time, vases remain one of the oldest cultural products in human history - they are a symbol for victory as a cup and represent death in form of an urn. Their versatility and shapes are endless and for Lukas, vases act as vessels of memory, moods, characters, stories and landscapes.
