Park in Progress is the public event that show what the people at Art4eu are doing. This is a fantastic place, both physically and in what they do. It’s a place near Paris called Marly le Roi (about 30 minutes by train) in an enormous park (hence the name) with a kind of castle, many trees… Their job is to help the young generation of artists spreading their talent by helping them move around europe or sometimes the world and create with other artists. This is not just a concept : it really works, there’s a feeling of share out there, artists are happy to give their work in progress, people are enthusiast about discovering new artists and they even take you back home for free! When you get in, the park is already filled with artists and installations, it makes people want to go everywhere, everyone lives a different experience. Last year it was a bit different but nice as well : people were taken from place to place in the park to see every performances. This year was like this only for the night part where everybody could enjoy one show at a time and avoid running. I personally enjoy this park a lot, because when I was young I remember spending a few days there to be part of a short film festival jury and last year I had some friends showing their film and playing the score live there too. As said above the artists take some risks as they show their work in progress, they come to the park about 1 week before the opening and try to feel what could be a good performance and where it should take place, often the performances are not confined to one place or time, some are linked in different spaces, and last all night in different forms. I tried to show that in my video. It lasts about 15 minutes and is available in different formats.

Pedro Soler introduced me to a project called horitzo.tv. This is a free and independent television project in Barcelona. It is produced and operated in complete independence by its team. They broadcast on the web, videos and live stream as well. The project is up and running, using free softwares and self made hardware. You can contact them if you are interested in building this kind of project yourself or if you need specific hardware. Check the website to watch horitzo and here you have a video showing you how it looks like and how it works. Horitzo is in spanish and catalan but they were kind enough to speak english in this video, don’t be affraid though it starts in spanish. Music by BIAS.

Hurry up, this exhibition is not going to last forever. Contemporary arts can use either old or new materials, in this exhibition the materials used are among the oldest ones: clay, sand, stoneware. Yet, the result is compelling and contemporary: works from prestigious institutions like Ariana Museum or prizes from Faenza, Vallauris and Chateauroux biennale have been gathered for this event to show the progression of Japanese ceramics over 50 years.
One very appreciable fact is the freedom to photograph or draw within the exhibition. At the opposite of some conservative museums, Sevres Museum allows the visitors to behave freely in a well organized venue.
The works displayed show at the same time a quality that is typical from the Japanese production, a high technical level in their realization and a pleasing creativity. The following piece by Mr. Sakiyama Takayuki is an excellent example of such combination:
Mr. Sakiyama work
The touch of Japanese contemporary creators can be clearly felt in these works, showing at the same time a deft play between material aspects and the graphic design that most pieces display. One of such work is this piece by Eisuke Kamiya:
The world of ceramics seem to open-up at some places and blossoms into wonderful creations that links worlds as diverse as sculpture, lighting, design, sound and performances. Such openness in the area of ceramics will undoubtedly trigger more openness from the contemporary art scene toward techniques that are “not new”. Let’s hope to see exhibitions of this quality in the future combined with other fields for a more transdisciplinary approach.
