The human brain classifies and sorts information in two categories through the intermediary of the hippocampus, a sort of Grand Central Station of the mind. Each and every person, animal, object, place and sign that you will encounter during the course of your life will pass through its doors.


L’esprit humain classe chaque information en 2 catégories par l’intermédiaire de l’hippocampe, sorte de chatelet-les-halles de l’information. Chaque personne, animal, objet, lieux, marque que vous êtes susceptible de croiser tout au long de votre vie passe par la.

The term ¨Bad Painting¨ can also be use to described the works of Yuan Chongyin, Frederic Matagne and Johann Rivat. But in this case it’s more a common based that they used to create a dialog between their different cultures and experiences, and to exchange about their similar practice: ¨the painted picture¨. As they define themselves: ¨the painting is a picture that think. It is a visual experience for both the artist and the viewer¨. Their paintings are emerging while doing. It is a process that brings thought and action together, one responding to the other. At the beginning it is never define what the ¨painted picture¨ will be. To paint is an experience. For these artists, art does not deliver a message, it is not an illustration and they are not helping the viewer to found it. It is simply a singular regard on the world we live in try to be available to other. It is a ¨sharing experience¨. It is a relationship, which does not work all the time. For a relation to work both parties need to be available, to listen and to talk. At the end, it is you, the viewer that finish the painting.

Six young and talented ceramic designers are brought into the spot light for the first time, rather then their products alone. The word “China” seems to always bring up the image of a mysteriously beautiful porcelain vase. For centuries, this country has indeed been known as the land of porcelain. Chinese Ceramics Art, as glorious as it once was had come to what seemed like a dead end; the market was full of tired-looking reproductions, or some half-baked modern pieces catered to the tourists. See how ceramic designers bring the design back to the basics: pure forms, subtle colors and clear purposes. And how they carry on a tradition, and paradoxically breaking away from it at the same time.
