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.
