Focus on Nathalie Pierlot vs Nadia Pasquer
From 25 February to 30 March 2023
Meet the artists on Saturday, March 11, 2023 at 5 pm
This year’s ceramicist duo, scheduled for the gallery’s reopening after the annual February closing, seems at first sight to present two radically opposed worlds. Yet the story told by Nadia Pasquer and Nathalie Pierlot translates into a harmonious dialogue in perfect accordance with their own artistic journey beyond trends and tendencies, each expressing a ceramic language that has successfully asserted and established itself over time.
Nadia Pasquer (born 1940) uses spheres, cones, cylinders and the five platonic solids as the basic forms to draw her inspiration from and make up her personal vocabulary that she can “infinitely” reinvent. Whether modelled, carved, perforated, polished, monochrome, smoked black, white or blue, her objects may stand on their own, be displayed together or as part of installation art…
Nathalie Pierlot (born 1951) is one of the founding members of the Galerie de l’Ancienne Poste in Toucy who joined the board as of 1997. She runs the Ratilly stoneware manufactory while simultaneously developing a personal production of unique pieces as a continuation of Saint-Amand-en-Puisaye stoneware, but reinterpreted with her own expression.
