“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
