Exhibition Catalogue Against Nature - Ceramics, a test of fire, presented at MOCO, Montpellier (21 may - 4 september 2022).
Nature is artifice, and artifice becomes nature in order to decategorize scales and values, as well as to reverse commonplaces regarding sculpture and the ceramic tradition. The works gathered concern ceramics less as folklore than as modeling and alchemy, technique, and magic. Water, earth, and fire are the essential, unrivaled components of these new worlds: « What we call against nature is in fact against custom. » (Montaigne)
