Keramis dedicates its new exhibition to the Belgian artist and designer Hugo Meert.
Who is Hugo Meert?
This ceramics teacher at the Charleroi Academy has seen his work rewarded several times. His creations, quite recognisable, reflect his thoughts on functionality, aesthetics and design. His designs capture the public's attention by their magnetic beauty and their Belgian quality: a good dose of surrealism and a sense of humour.
What to see at the exhibition?
2 pieces from the Keramis' collections:
- B.C. Hammer, a hammer made of china then golden plated, made to interfere with both Catholicism and communism
- Fuck-T, a teapot confronting the refinement of serving tea and rivalry between human beings
Hugo Mert created a serial design for Keramis: Cool Coal, ice cube shapes made of china which can be seen as charcoal pieces.
For this exhibition, its creations will be magnified through a surprising scenography, signed by Belgian designer Davy Grosemans.
From 20 March to 07 November 2021.
