Between reality and routine


In her work, Chloé Jarry conjures situations where art meets everyday life. She likes the indistinct sphere where these two realities mingle and interconnect, evoquing a never-ending dialogue between one and the other.
She has chosen the technique of earthenware as a material permitting me to mould and copy everyday objects : light bulbs, electrical sockets, adaptors, carpet slippers, grab-handles, pegs, plastic bottles forgotten on a bedside table... The technique of earthenware transforms the original object. During the steps of moulding, drying, and firing, the object gets distorted in a way that I cannot, and don’t wish to control, and my sculptures bear the traces of these accidents. Here’s what she is most interested in, as opposed to, for instance, a brand new and perfectly cast light switch freshly coming out of the production chain. I voluntarily keep the traces of my manipulation, I even leave the jagged edge you get during the process of casting. The hardly distorted form gives an impression of strangeness.
Her sculptures fully live in the space she offer to them. Discreet, they won’t change its function in the slightest, their presence will simply mark it in a subtle way, like appendixes from a parallel world.
She reproduces objects which are so typical for everyday life we don’t notice them any longer. Thus, her work offers a new regard on form, function, and space. {in French}

Ceramic travels

@ VOL 5 ON JUN 05, 2014

Karissa Chase is a Townsville girl who fled the city after graduating from high school, moved to Brisbane to study ceramics and hasn't looked back. After deciding to be a potter at the young age of 16, Karissa pursued her dream to do so. After graduating art college in Australia, America gave her the opportunity for love and the chance to introduce her ceramic work. Working with either the wheel or a rolling pin, each piece is not only cute, but how fortunate Karissa is to do what she loves.

Attention to Reality

@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

The Quinzaine Photographique Nantaise was born in 1997. Since then the festival is held every September. During a month (15 days in the early years) various exhibitions with a common theme are open to the public.

2016 will therefore be the year of its 20th anniversary.

Photography is a medium which is intimately connected to reality and a reproduction tool, but it is above all a form of language that draws its evocative power beyond words. The QPN favors this strong link to reality. The field of exploration of our festival is not disconnected from what matters in our lives.

Making meaningful programming choices, showing the plurality of expressions while drawing parallels between the works exhibited, and in the end producing a coherent and understandable project that we will enjoy sharing.

Amazing Black Women Not In Your History Book

@ VOL 18 ON MAR 10, 2018

It wasn't until Rayven Holmes was out of school that she discovered on her own that history also included amazing black women, and not just the old white guys that were in the school history books. Here is a small collection of those amazing black women, and why we need to get them included in the history books.
