This 2018 art work proposes another association of materials: ceramics and wood. The earth and the tree. The wooden sticks contribute to the strength and stability of the Circles. The circular and the linear. They also allow the assembly in different ways like a game. They are cells, living organisms. Plants as well as planets as individuals.
Inspired by color and working on it.
White porcelain. The painting, the color seemed to be out from my imagination, here it is, enriched and vital.
At the 17th century, the paint, the architecture, the furniture, the fabrics, the tapestries and the beginning of the 18th century, the Enlightenment.
Different forms, colors, materials, ideas, another vision of man, society and the world.
After antiquity, Roman art finally brings to an end the Middle Ages.
Phase 2 at Chassy, focused on the studio.
The walls are 1.5 m thick. All these stones filled two walls of large stones carved on one side. We took the stones from the closer quarry and carved them in the visible part.
Ocher limestone region between the Puisaye sandstone and the Morvan granite.
In the meantime, same as last year, i settled in the future hall. We find instinctively the atmosphere of the XVII century colors, both dark and bright. Heavy red, pink and blue ochres. Colors of Wermeer
My work is shared between Saint-Cloud, Chassy and Mexico that I will find in February 2019.
In this sculpture I wanted to develop the subject of envols in a different way and make them travel in time. I also wanted to mix techniques like molding or modeling and 3D printing. Here is the cat's head of the Egyptian goddess Bastet, the large dress that recalls the Menines, and the wings/arms of the petits envols (small flyers).
This porcelain sculpture made in a 3D printer is also a centaur portrait for a gift. This portrait is inspired by the work of the Remains Fields realized for Archéologies du Futur where I recall the excavation fields which inspires me so much. The porcelain reminds me of marble. We picture this sculpture as a part of an Imaginary Museum.
LIEN (bind) is a social exhibition and cultural heritage, an eco of the 2018 Dakar Biennial.
Pascale Fournier participated in the exhibition LIEN inaugurated may 15th 2018 in the Gallery 49 av. Jean Jaurès 75019 Paris.
Article published in the journal "Le Soleil de Dakar" http://www.lesoleil.sn/2016-03-22-23-38-25/item/78295-echo-parisien-a-la-biennale-de-dakar-la -d-gallery-launches-a-exhibition-collective.html
The bind between the cultures and men exists everywhere in the geographic, cultural and religious frontiers. The art was there to proof "LIEN" (bind) is not an empty word.
I was there to watch how we share the same values and the same things concerning us.
Thank you to the "D Galerie" and "Domitille Bertrand " for gathered us in this exposition.
This "LIEN" exhibition was a chance for me to show the knitting and installation
Somebody said: "yes, i understand the blue band which represents the .Mediterranean", other one mentioned "is the Samson and Dalida's chorus", "The red net recalled me the red sea's journey". "It's very biblical." A little girl told me "they play, they jump".
Thanks to everyone for being there.
1060 °C. It all went well.
Everything was packed by Gerda Grüber's supervision eye.
The last picture. We embrace each other: yucatecan's warm and eloquent hug.
Coming back to Merida on Tuesday where I'll start with the final touches.
On the wait we forget everything, it's Easter Sunday and we are gathering with family and friends on the beach.
Charging the oven carefully is what moved us this week.
We are five artists sharing the space.
It was set this Thursday at 5:00 o'clock and will last until 23:00 hrs.
At dawn the door will be open. It's going to be a special moment full of emotions.
Fire is the last jury.
Jícaras: integral part of the Mayan culture. Multifunctional and omnipresent element for eating, for water or for bathing; they are always used. They have a sacred and magical dimension as can be seen in the Popol Vuh.
Each sphere means the mother, the human being and the world.
Each person is a world.
The tree also unites the earth with the sky.
The long wooden sticks placed across the spheres, interweave visually the space between each other, connecting the world and the Universe, just as wires do.
We live in a connected world.
Graphic Records: that the jungle has covered the immense Mayan archaeological sites or that the Roman vestiges are in the heart of Chassy, only updates us in a small way.
The History, the past civilizations and the men who lived there share with us everyday life.
Weave, knitting, warp the threads. Clothes, put together the pieces of fabric, sew them. To wear, to cover, to protect. Kintsugi: break, gather the pieces, fix them adding more value.
First production of models, based in the creation of molds. Unique pieces, works created in Chassy.
Live the places Habit, live, habitation, hábitat, cohabit, uninhabited, habitable, reaccustom.
Wooded countryside, old charming intertwined fences.
I'm impressed and inspired by the endless diversity and beauty of the things.
Return to Chassy. Find the mists of the morning.
We made wings of angel or butterfly. You have to run fast to make them fly.
How to live in the places?
Appropriate the space. The artist with reflection, approach, ability to enliven and experience new ways of adaptation, participates in the preservation, transformation and renovation of places.
Integration or non-integration of works in outer space, geography and history.
Decorative sculptures, at the top of the columns of the porches resembling the support of classical sculpture.
Syncretism of cultures and archeology of the future.
FIAC's opening. A not to be missed annual event of contemporary art. Exciting! I found Domitille Bertrand of Develop'On. Successful exchanges and projects. Universe in deep resonance with my concerns and current work.I found freshness and renewal. Everything seems lighter, fragile, ephemeral, more mysterious and poetic too.
Paris Asian Art Fair’s opening last night. I came across some very appreciated themes, the artists I love or discover: Shoi's ceramics at the Maria Lund gallery, Rieko Koga's embroidery, Knitted baby sweaters full of tenderness and Aquilizan's couple humor, second hand clothes from Yuki Onodera. Universes resonating along with my current works.
Tonight is the FIAC's opening. A not to be missed Annual event of contemporary art. Exciting.
