Natural, raw, raw, raw earth, extracted from the landscape, the raw material for expression. Malleable clay, workable, it accompanies potters of all times. Experimentally, she has nurtured artistic projects at the environmental level with Earth art or at the material level in conceptual art. Earth, nourishing mother, she is also the territory of the intimate, of the body, the place of identity. More than ever, it is now a renewed expression in the field of plastic arts and crafts and combines practices, references and expressions.
Overcoming the gap between scholarly and popular culture, between gestural and intellectual knowledge, between technique and concept, I dreamt that the taste of crushed brick is a resolutely hybrid exhibition. It addresses the different artistic appropriations of ceramics, through a selection of sculptures and utilitarian objects, photographs, videos, installations and architectural constructions.
