Contre-Nature / Against Nature
MO.CO. Montpellier Contemporain
Against Nature is an exhibition inhabited by insolent, hybrid shapes made of clay and glaze, such grotesque creatures compose a luxuriant, original, mysterious, troubling, or even hallucinatory world. Nature is artifice, and artifice becomes nature in order to decategorize scales and values, as well as to reverse commonplaces regarding sculpture and the ceramic tradition. The works gathered concern ceramics less as folklore than as modeling and alchemy, technique, and magic. Water, earth, and fire are the essential, unrivaled components of these new worlds: « What we call against nature is in fact against custom. »
With works by Salvatore Arancio, Johan Creten, Roberto Cuoghi, Michel Gouéry, Takuro Kuwata, Claire Lindner, Sterling Ruby, Elsa Sahal, Katrina Schneider, Elmar Trenkwalder, Tamara Van San and many more.
Under the artistic direction of Numa Hambursin, general director
Curator: Vincent Honoré, director of exhibitions and Caroline Chabrand, curator
A catalogue is published on the occasion of the exhibition.

Toucher Terre - L'art de la sculpture céramique
Fondation Villa Datris, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue
The exhibition Toucher Terre at Foundation Villa Datris explores the influence of ceramics on contemporary sculpture. More than with other materials, the direct and tactile contact with the hand of the artists plays an important role. It is a sensual way of working, wherein art becomes material - with a seemingness unlimited plasticity.
With works by Miquel Barçelo, Johan Creten, Daniel dewar & Grégory Cicquel, Clémentine Dupré, Lucio Fontana, Michel Gouéry, Cameron Jamie, Laure Prouvost, Elsa Sahal, Clémence van Lunen, Tamara Van San, Anne Wenzel and more.

Of Mice and Men
Verduyn Gallery is pleased to present Of Mice and Men, a group exhibition showcasing a selection of national and international artists, including across three different buildings the works by Steven Peters Caraballo (BE), Francesca Casu (IT), Greet Desal (BE), Marc Janssens (BE), Peter Kohl (AT), Gino Lucas (BE), Karel Mechnig (BE), Lo Chan Peng (TW), Andreas Senoner (IT), Karel Thienpont (BE) and Tamara Van San (BE). Furthermore, the domain functions as a sculpture garden showcasing outdoor sculptures by Stief DeSmet (BE), Nick Ervinck (BE) and Pieter Obels (Ne).
The exhibition title is a direct reference to the eponymous novella and true classic of modern literature by John Steinbeck. Even though the book was published for the very first time in 1937, the story never lost its relevance and wit. Of Mice and Men discusses the importance of having dreams, friendships, and our relation towards — and similarities with — animals. However, it also tackles loneliness, testing socio-economic times, and how we can harm animals (and people) or our direct surroundings in general by manner of inhuman behaviour.
Verduyn Gallery is pleased to welcome you from May 15 until July 3, 2022, on Saturday and Sunday from 14:00 to 18:00, or by appointment.
