For the summer season, the François Schneider Foundation presents a temporary exhibition entitled “Aqua Terra”, showcasing contemporary ceramics through the sculptural work of some thirty ceramic artists. “Aqua Terra” offers the opportunity to plunge into a world both tangible and fantastic, where the imagination is set free through the magic of ceramics. Structured in six parts, the exhibition unveils different universes linked to the aquatic world, transporting visitors from the sunny beach to the marine horizon, from the polar regions to the depths of the ocean. The artists have explored all manifestations of water, from the beauty of icebergs floating in the oceans to underwater life with its colorful corals and marine animals.
The ceramic sculptures provide a striking representation of these different sources of inspiration around water, while conveying its fragility and delicacy as a precious ecosystem.
