« Another formal pattern runs through Europa exótica, it is the crack, which prolongs and digs the cross-outs to create an aperture. Nathalie Perret indeed decided to keep track of accidents that happen during cooking, when the clay breaks or chips. These events sometimes manifest themselves as thin cracks (Conchas), sometimes as more scarred breakages (Europa exótica); sometimes whole parts were detached (Vasija craneo y chicle). It is also from her own gesture of making that the artist lets appear fallibility. Failure. »
