“Stir the Pot! Collaborative project of the ceramic classes of Vevey, Bern and Geneva.”

Curator: Fabien Clerc

As part of the various festivities linked to the IAC jubilee, the three Swiss professional ceramics training centres devised and created a collaborative project in the form of inter-school exchanges. This project took place over a year with 24 third-year students from the schools of Vevey, Bern  and Geneva. In the end, eight projects/installations were presented at this exhibition, which took place in the CFPArts exhibition hall in Geneva.

On the agenda: Guided tours by the students of the Ceramics section – Geneva.

“ECART – Resonating Ceramics – from 20 Hz to 1280°C”

Curators: Caroline Andrin, Frédéric Bauchet, Laurent Berger, Ondine Bréaud, Magdalena Gerber, Mathieu Schmitt

The exhibition Resonating Ceramics – from 20 Hz to 1250°C presents the work of four art schools, produced as part of the research-creation project ECART – European Ceramic Art and Research Team. In pairs, the students explored the relationship between ceramic material and sound, while linking their project to the notion of ritual. While their work places great emphasis on formal experimentation, it also calls upon acoustics, sociology and anthropology. Utilitarian objects, symbolic objects, performative objects, the pieces play with these categories by blurring visual and sound perception. Technically innovative and aesthetically fruitful, this first LiveInYourHead performance is supported by the EU’s Erasmus + programme, which is accompanying the project.

On the agenda: Conference, guided tours, performances
