Curator Kris Campo has a reputation for making idiosyncratic choices and surprising combinations. In ‘This is the sound of C’, she brings together the work of eight contemporary artists from Belgium and abroad, averse to any ‘pigeonholing’. She combines figurative sculptures with whirling ceramic pottery and textile and painting in expressive scenes. In doing so, she indicates that the conventional classification of art forms on the basis of discipline or material is of little importance. What counts is the expression and the impact of the sculptures created by the artist.

Participating artists: Johannes Nagel, Anne Marie Laureys, Babs Haenen, Clémence van Lunen, Coline Rosoux, Klaas Rommelaere, Michel Gouéry and Robin Vermeersch.

Dutch ceramic and glass galleries have a remarkably long lifespan.
Gallery De Witte Voet opened its doors 40 years ago…
In April 2020 gallery Carla Koch celebrates its 25th anniversary. After a flying start on the Prinsengracht, the gallery moved to the banks of the IJ in 2007, where Carla Koch organises sparkling exhibitions in building Detroit.
What makes this gallery special? And how does she react to the decline in gallery visits?

Gallery Carla Koch has a unique specialism: ceramic and glass objects that usually refer to the container form, but at the same time liberate themselves from their function. They thus move in the interesting no man’s land between visual art and design. The gallery shows different mentalities and presents conceptual as well as architectural and narrative work.

A second asset is the international orientation. This requires extra effort and greater investment, but enriches the range on offer! For years now, gallery Carla Koch has presented leading Asian, Canadian and European ceramists, including Kayoko Hoshino, Yikyung Kim, Les Manning and Bodil Manz.
A relative newcomer is the Belgian ceramicist Anne Marie Laureys. Because new talent is actively followed.

Around honey as the golden-yellow, tongue-caressing ‘sweetener’,
About apiculture and Anthophilia, freely translated into ‘flower worshipper’,
Along the miraculous, ingenious honeycomb, which is both nursery and storage; 
To the fragility of existence and the worrying bee mortality.
An expo full of wonder with fascinating artworks and groundbreaking objects and jewellery balancing between contemporary cross-over art and craft.

Een oud Duits spreekwoord: Wie gods wonderen wil gadeslaan, moet naar de bijen gaan.

De symbolische kracht van de honingbij is een constante in de geschiedenis van de mensheid.

De bij geeft aanleiding tot religieuze riten, bijgeloof en verhalen over wonderen.

Het wezen van de bij is raadselachtig.

De fascinatie voor het leven van de bijen blijft een poging de benauwende grenzen van de realiteit te doorbreken. De bijen bewegen zich vrij in de lucht, zijn toch gebonden aan de aarde, hun veelvuldigheid (de planten, bloemen) heeft een duidelijk doel (de korf, de honing).

Dit illustreert de vrijheid in gebondenheid: tegelijkertijd zichzelf zijn en een maatschappelijk wezen blijven.


In 2019, BeCraft joined the Cultural Council of the Michelangelo Foundation. As a member for three years, the association is actively working to identify and recommend Belgian master craftspeople to the Foundation. The Michelangelo Foundation and BeCraft share many objectives, the most fundamental of which is that of perpetuating skills and techniques through the transmission of knowledge and raising public awareness of the reality facing contemporary applied arts. Given the considerable challenge for artists and institutions that constituted the period of lockdown due to Covid-19, the opportunity to propose an exhibition with an international reach for the reopening seemed opportune. On this occasion BeCraft spotlights twelve artists, the first Belgian representatives of Homo Faber. Each offer a unique perspective on the technical mastery of their specific fields related to the applied arts. The collaboration with the Michelangelo Foundation on this exhibition opens up promising perspectives on the question of the sustainability of contemporary applied arts. It offers the public the possibility to discover a significant insight into the quality of the contemporary applied art professions in Belgium. It is also an opportunity for the artists to become acquainted with The Master’s Touch Evaluation Tool, the selection tool of the Michelangelo Foundation in order to be promoted internationally through its projects.

They’re all artists who know the pot by heart. They produced it, loved it and still love it. But rather than perpetuating a production of containers, they prefer to divert or rely on the vocabulary of the pottery tradition to express themselves differently, to enjoin this millennial history to be nourished by an original and much more contemporary reflection.
The results are both splendid and surprising. As you can see, fragments of pots are still hiding there, sometimes in a fragmentary way, but from any function relieved. They are sculptures enriched with a whole bunch of historical references that only reinforce their cultural relevance.

Ce sont tous des artistes connaissant le pot par cœur. Ils l’ont produit, l’ont aimé et l’aiment toujours. Mais plutôt que perpétuer une production de contenants, ils préfèrent détourner ou s’appuyer sur  le vocabulaire de la tradition potière pour s’exprimer autrement, pour enjoindre à cette histoire millénaire de se nourrir d’une réflexion originale et autrement plus contemporaine.
Les résultats sont à la fois splendides et surprenants. Comme vous le voyez, des bribes de pots s’y cachent toujours, parfois de façon fragmentaire, mais de toute fonction délestés. Ce sont des sculptures enrichies de tout un bouquet de références historiques qui ne font que renforcer leur pertinence culturelle.
