Critic’s Choice: Scintillating Ceramics

Paris, France – An intriguing and unique exhibition is being played out in Paris devoted to the works in ceramic from six artists and it is being held in a highly original venue: the Galerie Terrain Vagh art gallery which also houses a recording studio and a space for performance art. The show entitled Céramiques en farandole, which can be translated as an array of ceramics, was curated by Véronique Grange-Spahis and Moufida Atig and offers an illusion to Matisse who accumulated objects, notably ceramics that appeared in his paintings and also created pieces in ceramic and the artists, like Matisse have, all lived or worked in Provence, explains Véronique Grange-Spahis.

The works on display underscore the diversity of the medium and include sculptures but as well, decorative and useful objects all employing not just art but fine craftsmanship. It is a colorful show featuring unique one of a kind pieces drawing their inspiration from nature or noses, feminine silhouettes and the good earth. Catherine Bouillot and Agnès Malterre are nature oriented while Anne Millot sculpts noses. Sophie Sainrapt and Vanessa Vagh-Weinmann draw their inspiration from the feminine body and Alain Vagh-Weinmann creates colorful totems from clay and the earth’s crust. Ceramics are the heart and soul of the gallery Terrain Vagh which was the showroom of the ceramist Alain Vagh whose Alain Vagh Céramique was given the prestigious Living Heritage Company label. The artist asked Moufida Atig to create the gallery.
