Press release

We are pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition devoted entirely to ceramics. The show features the work of seven artists: Tony Cragg (*1949, Liverpool), Alberto Garutti (*1948, Galbiate), Martin Disler (1949, Seewen – 1996, Geneva), Bettina Pousttchi (*1971, Mainz), Alex Dorici (*1979, Lugano), Thomas Virnich (*1957, Eschweiler) and Véronique Arnold (*1973, Strasbourg).

 

One of the most ancient materials in human history, ceramics has been used to produce pottery, crockery, decorations and construction materials since the origins of man. Properties like elasticity, wear resistance and durability have allowed a widespread use of ceramics in both sculpture and architecture. In all of its different forms (firing temperatures, composition, glazes, paint, etc.), ceramics has been an integral part of the history of human evolution since antiquity.

 

The exhibition at Agra takes a look at contemporary artistic production focusing on ceramics. The show includes the work of seven of the gallery’s artists: Sir Tony Cragg (knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in June 2016) presents works from the 1990s, and two more recent small sculptures. Alberto Garutti, well known for his radical and conceptual approach to art, has created a work especially for this exhibition. The show also features several terracotta pieces by Martin Disler that were recently displayed at the Kunsthalle in Bielefeld and published in the exhibition catalogue. Drawing inspiration from her special interest in architecture, the Berlin-based German-Iranian artist Bettina Pousttchi produces works in which seriality and spatial dynamism delineate a substantial equilibrium of form. Alex Dorici’s installation is inspired by the azulejo tiles of Portugal’s architectural tradition. There are also glazed ceramic works by Thomas Virnich, some of which were presented in early 2016 in Tony Cragg’s venue in Wuppertal. Finally, Véronique Arnold presents a delicate, poetic new work alluding to Japanese traditions relating to the passing of time and the ephemeral existence of human beings.

 

These artists put forward a wealth of different interpretations of a common medium, ceramics. Some works recall the plant or the animal kingdom; others reflect on the relationship between architecture and space; still others engage directly with the surrounding environment. The exhibition offers a varied, singular group of works centring on the artistic ceramic production of local and international artists, providing an opportunity to discover new stimuli and to be amazed by the uniqueness of the works.

Comunicato stampa

Abbiamo il grande piacere di annunciare l’apertura della mostra tematica dedicata interamente alla ceramica. Sette gli artisti in mostra: Tony Cragg (*1949, Liverpool), Alberto Garutti (*1948, Galbiate), Martin Disler (1949, Seewen-1996, Ginevra), Bettina Pousttchi (*1971, Mainz), Alex Dorici (*1979, Lugano),Thomas Virnich (*1957, Eschweiler), Véronique Arnold (*1973, Strasbourg).           

La ceramica è uno dei più antichi materiali utilizzati dall’uomo sin dalle sue origini per produrre vasellame, stoviglie, decorazioni o materiale per la costruzione di abitazioni. Le sue proprietà plastiche, la resistenza e la durata nel tempo hanno permesso una grande diffusione della ceramica sia in scultura che in architettura. La ceramica, in tutte le sue forme (diversi gradi di cottura, composizione di materiali diversi, smaltata, dipinta e via dicendo) è parte integrante della storia evolutiva dell’essere umano sin dall’antichità.

 

L’esposizione tematica di Agra intende gettare uno sguardo sulla produzione artistica contemporanea in cui l’utilizzo della ceramica è al centro dell’attenzione. In mostra le opere di sette artisti della Galleria; Sir Tony Cragg, (da giugno 2016 nominato Cavaliere dalla Regina Elisabetta II) presenta dei lavori realizzati nel corso degli anni Novanta e due piccole sculture più recenti. Alberto Garutti, noto per il suo approccio artistico radicale e concettuale, ha concepito e creato un’opera appositamente per la mostra. Inserite nel percorso espositivo vi sono più opere in terracotta di Martin Disler esposte di recente alla Kunsthalle di Bielefeld e riprodotte nel relativo catalogo della mostra. L’artista tedesco iraniana Bettina Pousttchi, traendo spunto dal particolare interesse per l’architettura, realizza delle opere in cui serialità e dinamismo spaziale disegnano un sostanziale equilibrio della forma. Alex Dorici è presente con una sua installazione ispirata all’azulejo, piastrella in ceramica appartenente alla tradizione architettonica del Portogallo. Saranno esposte anche opere in ceramica smaltata di Thomas Virnich, in parte presentate ad inizio 2016 nello spazio espositivo di Tony Cragg a Wuppertal. Véronique Arnold propone infine un nuovo lavoro, delicato e poetico, che fa riferimento alla tradizione giapponese in relazione allo scorrere del tempo e all’effimera esistenza dell’essere umano.

 

Una proposta ricca di interpretazioni differenti basate su di un comune medium che è la ceramica; opere che rievocano il mondo vegetale e altre quello animale, opere che riflettono sul rapporto tra architettura e spazio, altre ancora che si relazionano direttamente all’ambiente circostante. La mostra offre un gruppo di lavori variegato e singolare incentrato sulla produzione artistica in ceramica di artisti locali e internazionali. Un’occasione per scoprire nuovi stimoli e  lasciarsi stupire dalla particolarità delle opere.
