Elizabeth Dychter in Residence

2019

Aparentemente ronica e irreverente, Elysabeth Dychter lascia una riflessione più profonda di quella aprezzata visualmente dallo spettatore. Il seno, strumento feminile di grande potere si presenta in due istallazioni sotto il titolo spoglio “Tetas”. La belleza e la decadenza, l’amore e il dolore, la vita e la morte, tutto riassunto nella stessa “teta”. Nata e cresciuta a Buenos Aires, figlia di un sopravvissuto all'Olocausto, sapeva fin da subito cosa significava la trasmissione della memoria e il valore della vita. Dopo un percorso di più di 30 anni, ricco di succesi e riconoscimenti, l’artista approfondisce sempre intorno a quel bisogno di lasciare un'eredità.

Il lavoro di Elysabeth Dychter è il risultato di un mese di residenza artistica al Faenza Art Ceramic Center eseguendo un lungo processo tecnico con la porcellana, sviluppando e includendo nuovi concetti con la colaborazione dei tecnici e curatori di questo centro. È così che il FACC aggiunge un nuovo tasselo a questa fertile alleanza, sensibile, culturale e artistica tra i continenti con un punto di riferimento: la città di Faenza.

Le opere saranno in mostra nel nuovo spazio faentino per l’arte contemporanea: Officine Matteucci che vanta una ricca identità artistica e storica; riconosciuto Centro Nazionale della lavorazione di intere generazioni Mateucci del ferro battuto, dal 1640 al 1960. Oggi, Officine Matteucci è seguita e curata da quattro giovanni faentini, una squadra di lavoro con ampie capacità professionali.

La scelta del tipo di argilla da impiegare ed individuare la migliore tecnica di modellazione per la produzione delle forme sarà di basilare importanza per avere successo nel portare a termine i vostri progetti ed evitare perdite di tempo e di denaro.

Il corso non è finalizzato alla realizzazione di oggetti finiti ma si limita alla produzione in libertà di esperienze costruttive, tattili e di cottura sempre sotto la guida del docente.

LA SINTERRACOTTA | Giovanni Cimatti

30-31 March 2019

Monocottura con gres a partire da 1050 gradi

Una buona ceramica si distingue non solo per come è rivestita e la sua intrinseca arte ma sopratutto per il suo corpo che è forte e compatto quando è realizzata in gres. Oggi è possibile utilizzare un innovativo gres bianco, anche senza raggiungere la faticosa e costosa alta temperatura, ed avere la sinterizzazione di questa argilla in tutti i tipi di forni per ceramica.

Durante il corso faremo anche esperienza di come sia possibile ridurre ulteriormente i costi facendo una cottura unica di argilla e smalti che viene infatti definita monocottura. Useremo un'argilla plastica che rende facile modellare qualsiasi tipo di forma e particolari medium per l'applicazione a pennello di rivestimenti che saranno campiti anche con l'impiego di maschere adesive. Sara possibile infine anche applicare, in seconda cottura a 900 gradi, un simpatico e innovativo smalto oro.

Il corso di 14 ore inizia alle ore 9.00 e termina alle ore 17:00 del sabato e inizia alle ore 9:00 e termina alle ore 16.00 della domenica.

IMMEDIATE TRANSPARENCIES | Martha Pachon

11-12 May 2019

Liquid porcelain without use of the mold and in sigle firing

Transparency is one of the most important qualities of porcelain and usually requires a prolonged, precise and very accurate processing to obtain a piece of fine beauty highlighted by the translucency of the light. This course allows you to develop two simple and immediate techniques that will facilitate and strengthen creativity to develop many projects without the use of large resources and experience in the field of porcelain.

We will use the slip porcelain without the use of molds and single-firing and the two techniques, one for objects with organic shapes and another for objects with geometric shapes and more precise.

The 14-hour workshop lasts from 9.00 to 17.00 on Saturday and from 9.00 to 16.00 on Sunday.
