Artifices instables: Histoires des céramiques. Poteries artistiques de Monaco (1871-1918), Aaron Angell, Eugène Baudin, Chiara Camoni, Johan Creten, Albert Diato, Simone Fattal, Ron Nagle, George Ohr, Pablo Picasso, Brian Rochefort, Magdalena Suarez Frimkess

This project avoids traditional narratives that relegate ceramics to the margins of the arts, instead paying tribute to the medium by questioning it as a heterogeneous material capable of telling numerous stories. Starting with the creation of the first Artistic Pottery of Monaco in the latter half of the 19th century, this publication highlights major figures in the history of ceramics in the Principality – Charles and Marie Fischer, Eugène Baudin, and Albert Diato – and examines the work of many artists including Johan Creten, Simone Fattal, George Ohr, Ron Nagle, Pablo Picasso, and Magdalena Suarez Frimkess. Some of these artists, despite historical or geographical distances, share deep connections and unexpected complicities. This publication gathers several interpretations that this malleable medium has inspired over more than a century, reflecting the ceramic artists’ aspiration to shift perspectives. It brings together texts by Cecilia Canziani, Valérie Da Costa, Chus Martínez, Cristiano Raimondi, and Agnès Roux in a bilingual French-English edition. Published following the eponymous exhibition at the New National Museum of Monaco – Villa Sauber, from September 18, 2020, to January 31, 2021.
