"Architecture of amnesia" Martine Le Fur in the space "La Peixera"
bonart la bisbal d'empordà - 03/11/22

From October 21st you can visit the new temporary exhibition in the "La Peixera" space of the Terracotta Museu de la Bisbal d'Empordà entitled Architecture of amnesia by the French ceramist Martine Le Fur.

This exhibition is the result of the first artistic residency that has taken place in the workshop space that the Associació de Ceramistes de la Bisbal has at the Terracotta Museum. Throughout the month of September, Martine Le Fur has been working on this exhibition.

With reference to this exhibition, the ceramist comments that "memory is the architect of the soul in front of the outside world. The mental object that emanates from me illustrates our emotionality in the world. However, our acts, often impermeable, forget and transform. History is the first to grant itself the right to recast events and adapt them to its advantage. Amnesiac of lived realities we repeat mistakes and tragedies, crossing the barriers of respect. Diaphanous references give way to the ruins of our mind".

Born in 1957, Martine Le Fur has been working with clay since she was sixteen, she entered the School of Fine Arts in Rouen (Normandy, France) in 1977. Fueled by her innate curiosity and her desire for constant innovation, her academic studies were the basis for seeking only experiences and making a radical turn, moving away from academicism. The ceramist's research starts from dialoguing with the materials until she finds her own language where the form is as important as the material used. In the words of the ceramist "Experimentation opens the doors to a learning process that never stops. That's when, with all legitimacy, I can go beyond the prohibitions and combine traditionally incompatible materials."

It should be remembered that Martine Le Fur presented her first solo exhibition in 1988, and since then she has exhibited all over Europe and, occasionally, in Korea. He has work in public collections in France and has received many awards and recognitions for his work both at fairs and at different events specialized in ceramics
