The idea of the project is to invest the gallery Lefebvre & Fils, space full of stories and traces that read and allow to create a new narration from these fragments gleaned, faiences painted blue, arabesques, patterns reminiscent of foam or abstraction. So we introduced our history in this history of ceramics but also that of a filiation that we gleaned and watched. The notes are large lays of printed cotton fabrics, from the notebooks, chronologically classified and mixing drawing observation, boredom, research. We can read the progress of the work and its questions, its inscription and its place in a historical field. It is a temporal and cerebral walk. Ceramics that come off this frame oscillates between several series, some unpublished, started for the exhibition. They are the witnesses of our relationship to drawing, they recompose the fragments and motifs from the three-dimensional notebooks and play the conventions between applied arts and art between everyday objects, trivial, functional and sculptural. They recall the manifesto and the collective wish of the artists and artisans of the municipality, namely to abolish the boundaries between decorative arts and fine arts, to seek the beautiful and to make an access to freedom and non-alienation to a society that instrumentalizes gesture and thought and creates classes. In the eyes of these objects that play borders, small herbaria like encyclopaedic boards of a hypothetical trip to Italy and paintings coated with drawing, resumption of female figures as muses who would play the stereotypes and evoke great figures of female artists. This exhibition is intended primarily as a walk in our preoccupations and principles it is an exhibition that plays with the materials between cotton, sensitive paper, earth, engobes matte and enamels, but also the superimpositions, the modes manufacturing, screen printing, gesture that are intended as ricochets between practices and surfaces.
