Exhibition Ann Van Hoey
On the edges of design
As a closing event of this year’s programme that marked the 20th anniversary of its creation, the Galerie de l’Ancienne Poste, dedicated to contemporary ceramics, is hosting for the first time Belgian ceramic artist Ann Van Hoey, whose world-renowned work has earned her multiple international awards. Using a system of cuts, incisions and successive folds somewhat reminiscent of the Japanese origami technique, Ann Van Hoey creates forms where geometric rigour and sobriety of expression accentuate the elegant poetry of the lines and volumes. The artist leaves nothing to chance, expressing a search for perfection and great simplicity that turn these “objects” into true sculptures.
