Bling-Bling? International Ceramic Competition of the City of Carouge

The exhibition of the works selected for the 18th edition offers a broad panorama of contemporary ceramic creation, focusing on an imposed theme.

Constance Jacob & Ismaël Abdallah

Both technically and metaphorically, alchemy and ceramics have always been closely related. But the practice of alchemy, which once aimed to transmute lead into gold, today calls into question the notions of success, wealth and the provenance of precious metals.
Bling-bling? It is this process of questioning, in the form of onomatopoeia evoking the sound of gold chains rubbing together, which was addressed by numerous artists in the context of the International Ceramics Competition of the City of Carouge. The works selected are brought together in this exhibition, which opens the doors to a radiant universe and approaches the subject in its critical dimension.
