The ceramist constructs around a void; the glassblower, in contrast, creates this void. Poised between tension and equilibrium, vessels push back the walls of the constrained and controlled material; they envelop an inner physical or metaphorical space.
Slab built pots contain traces of drips. Boxes and vessels radiate silently through cloudy glass. Huge dishes accommodate abstract landscapes. A tangible presence emanates from sculptures. Energy and sensitivity flow from turned forms.
Imprinted with each artist’s unique expressive language, these works oscillate between materiality and emotion; they invite contemplation.
Invited by the Musée Ariana, Monique Deul, founder of the Genevan gallery TASTE Contemporary, has brought together seven contemporary artists who continue the dialogue between container and contained, going beyond the utilitarian function of the object to deal with more conceptual concerns.
