MASTERCLASS Ceramics at Culture Center Strombeek, B 7-6-2012 at 20hrs

AnneMarie Laureys explores for HEAT, the possibilities of what seems impossible. During this Masterclass she illustrates her approach with a focus on the creation of her recent ceramics.

She throws archetypical forms on the wheel. Yet, the plasticity of the material invites her to go beyond the thrown wall. To meet her sensual involvement with the material she tests and explores its physical boundaries.After altering a series of forms she assembles them to create an organic abstraction as an open invitation to feel the constraint tension, to discover the vivacity and the altered touch.These ceramic objects have a dynamic sensuality that pushes the malleability of the ceramic medium and the fluidity of the glazes to the extreme.

HITTE/HEAT an experiment! at a Gallery and Private museum in Ghent, B 6-11> 4-12-2011

Anne Marie Laureys invites artists out of the fine and applied arts, not into ceramics, to work in her studio during several months to try out new ideas into clay.  The exhibition of these unusual results will take place at a well known ceramic gallery and private museum in Ghent, Belgium. Most of the art works are made in dialogue with the medieval rooms and eclectic modern new spaces build on … A great opportunity for several participants in this exhibition is the confrontation with lots of remarkable objects from the historic private collection of  the owner with their recent creations…

Jos Devriendt, Hilde De Decker, Frans Gentils, Hanneke Van Hage, Patrick Vanhuffel, Anne Marie Laureys work out objects and atmospheres different from what the public is used to see in this gallery!

Didier Van de Steene is writing an essay about HITTE/HEAT!
