Between Art & Design, The Belgian scene offers us an ensemble that reflects the wealth and particularly the diversity of contemporary Belgian design. In this selection, the most striking aspect is the great artistic diversity that is also a strong characteristic of the world of visual arts in Belgium. The designers are acting as very independent and individual and they have developed their own ideas about the day-to-day environment and the interiorobject. This exhibition highlights the importance of the questions that Belgian designers have around the choice of form and function in designs. The tension between these two fundamental aspects of design was a key element in the selection of the items for the show. This tension also comes up in the research into and experiments in the techniques and materials used. The result is always a very personal design language that invite interaction. The objects may surprise, make us think about, move us, disturb or mislead, or even amuse. Curated by Roel Rijssenbeek & Inge Vranken at the occasion of Brussels Design September 2018.

In this groupshow curated by Monique Deul of Taste Contemporary 5 recent pieces are on show. This exhibition entitled Contained | Contenu, Taste Contemporary, in collaboration with Musée Ariana, is proud to present the unique voices of seven internationally renowned artists working in ceramics and glass, each of whom explore particular sensibilities and concerns of containment in an exhibition of works that inhabits the territory between the physical and the emotional.
In addition they demonstrate that while materiality, form and process are intrinsic to their practice, different approaches to function also exist within their expressive vocabulary as they engage with the notion of containment.
atelier lachaert dhanis invites anne marie laureys ceramics
Starting from a series of thrown vases on the pottery wheel, Anne Marie & Patrick – Montagne Russe subtly pushes, pinches, pulls, dents and folds the wet and soft clay with their fingers. Thrown and deformed parts are assembled together. The essence of clay and the traces of movement are hypostasized into solid form. This result in amorphous objects have a sensuality that stresses the ample suppleness of clay, in sculptures that exploits the tension between volume and skin, between texture and color

27 céramistes interrogent ce matériau universel mais qui marque tout particulièrement nos paysages nordistes : maisons de briques, usines de briques, cheminées de briques !
VISITE GUIDÉE de l’exposition De Briques… au WCC-BF Galerie Mons, B sur demande et gratuit sur certains dates à consulter sur www.wcc-bf.org
Une exposition de céramique où se réunissent les épris de la matière, de la terre et de la brique.
L’amour de la matière, la passion pour la terre. Voilà ce qu’un céramiste exprime avant tout. Car celle-ci est le point de départ de toutes choses, notamment celui de la brique, façonnée par le labeur et rougie par les flammes pour bâtir notre paysage nordique.
C’est dans l’optique de mettre particulièrement en avant la brique, la terre qui la compose et ceux qui la transforment que le WCC•BF, le Centre Céramique contemporaine La Borne et l’École d’Art de Douai se joignent au Non-Lieu (Roubaix) pour faire voyager De Briques…
