Formes Limites: Pratiques de la céramique et sculptures contemporaines

From thursday 24 january 2019 to saturday 23 february 2019

Chapelle des Petits-Augustins

14 rue Bonaparte, 75006

Formes Limites is an exhibition dedicated to ceramics and brings together works of art, ceramic works, design objects and elements from the field of manufacturing. It sheds light on the sculptural potential of these materials. Each of the works presented testifies to a specific approach to ceramics and its shaping. Taught at Beaux-Arts de Paris, ceramics asserts a place in our era thanks to its technical and aesthetic qualities. The exhibition, held in the Chapelle des Petits-Augustins in a unique décor of sculpted and painted 19th century copies, testifies to a renewed interest in a technique which gives pride of place to know-how and manual production.

Featured artists: Philippe Barde, Karen Bennicke, Emmanuel Boos, Pia Camil, Tony Cragg, Ceràmica Cumella, Martine Damas, Richard Deacon, Helen Marten, Koyo Matsui, Ryo Mikami, Emilie Pedron, Bettina Pousttchi, Lucie Rie, Fumio Shimada, Ettore Sottsass, Takashi Tanaka, Makoto Toyofuku, Kato Toyohisa, Marc Uzan, Élise Vandewalle, Betty Woodman, Naoki Yamamoto.

Curator and scenographer: Jessica Boubetra.
