Taula-01 ENG

Residencia de investigación, experimentación y cocreación

Pieces that encourage us to revisit traditional ceramics through new prisms.

Taula (Ibicencan for table) is a new mobile curatorial device where the programming revolves around a table that acts as a demonstrative, expository, explanatory, and dialogical element.  The table can be placed in the most unusual places and with the most unexpected content.

Just as the table may change, the Taula program will also grow organically as it contains not only its own projects, but also those of curators, artists and other invited cultural agents.

This summer, from August 11 to September 3, Taula will be the meeting place for a selection of ceramicists from Ibiza, opening a new window in La Carpintería, a place that is increasingly versatile while bringing the work of these creators to the interested public.

With Taula-01 we walk alongside these ceramicists on their way from the functional to the artistic and sculptural.  These pieces encourage us to revisit traditional ceramics, an essential part of the most ancient Ibizan culture and crafts, through new prisms.

The participants are: Anneliese Witt, Elena Noguera Wilson, Inés Ventós, LADIO Ceramics, Marina Marón, and Natalie Rich-Fernández.

For this first edition of Taula, Vito di Rosa, an architect focused on environmental projects, has designed a table reusing industrial trestles found in the warehouse that were used in the remodeling work of the current La Carpintería space.

Taula-01 has been curated by Ses12Naus.

La Carpintería. Rio Arno, 58 (Can Bufí)
Tuesday to Friday from 7 to 10 p.m., and by appointment though info@ses12naus.org
On view until September 3

Anneliese Witt

Bio

With a degree in art pedagogy from the Higher School of Fine Arts in Berlin, Anneliese Witt moved to Ibiza in 1960 –after her marriage to the painter Rafael Tur Costa– and lived on the island until her death in 2018. She worked as a plastic arts teacher at Escola Blat d'Eivissa and opened her own art school for children and adults, Infantart. In parallel, she obtained a degree in applied arts from the School of Arts and Crafts of Eivissa.

Since 1982 she has developed an artistic production as a ceramicist and has participated, since its foundation in 2000, in the exhibitions organized by the Association of Visual Artists of the Balearic Islands (AAVIB). In 2008 she was part of the “Agua” exhibition during the Zaragoza Expo and exhibits individually in Ibiza, at Via 2 Gallery. In August 2011 she exhibited at the Center Sociocultural s'Alamera together with Rafael Tur Costa.

About her work

“She started from a material, clay, which is mythical memory, ancestral memory, she worked on it with perseverance and enjoyment, and told us a story, which was hers. She […]  created an artistic ceramic work far removed from pragmatism. She shaped a work based on freedom, search and authenticity”. (Eva Tur Antonio)

Elena Noguera Wilson

Bio

Elena works on the links between past and present and the relationship between different cultures and their idiosyncrasies, between different forms and materials. Her great obsession is cohesion, finding that point of coherent connection between two or more completely different bodies and ideas; demonstrate that everything is associated and find the ideal context and environment to do so.

Her relationship with ceramics began in her teens and it has been her favourite hobby ever since. 2018 came loaded with events that changed her perception of her life and led her to great personal and professional changes. Setting up a ceramics studio while studying for an Interior Design master’s degree gave her the ability to immerse himself in her visual and experiential creativity in a more conscious way.

Curios Collection

This is a very personal collection that is nourished by memories. Curios is inspired by those forgotten objects or objects of unknown origin, invaluable to some but conferring great aesthetic appreciation to others. Classic shapes brought to the present with geometric games, color combinations and gold accents.

Inés Ventós

Bio

Born in Barcelona, ​​after graduating in law from the UB, she studied artistic ceramics and pottery at the Francisco de Alcántara School of Art in Madrid and photo printing on ceramics with Cristina Márquez. In Ibiza she studied with Toni Marí Frígoles and other referents of the island, such as Adrián Ribas and Antoni Ribas `Toniet´, strengthening her interest and curiosity for ceramics.

The sack of potatoes

"When I touch the clay I go into a state of meditation. In silence, the here and now is all that matters to me. The smell of the clay brings back memories of my childhood. At breaks I dreamed of rainy days, when the schoolyard was wet, with my friend Sasha we made mud pies of all sizes, we put small logs and tree branches in them.

“These sacks of potatoes signify my life in Ibiza, in the countryside, where life seems to stop. They are my little memory and expression of the place where I live with my family and in the company of our neighbours, generous and hard-working people, who have shown me their culture and together with them I have lived magical moments”.

LADIO Ceramics

Bio

Laura de Grinyo is the artisan behind LADIO Ceramics, founded in 2020. Laura grew up in Ibiza, which is where her studio is located, surrounded by pine trees and Mediterranean plants typical of the island. Her work stems from the origins of the pottery tradition of Ibiza, linked with a contemporary and organic aesthetic. She learned from master Adrián Ribas in his workshop in Sa Teulera (Ibiza) founded in 1945 by Juan Planells-"Daifa"-one of the most popular representatives of the island's pottery culture.

LADIO Ceramics has been published in Financial Times, AD Spain, El País Semanal, Vanity Fair, Vogue Living, Arquitectura & Diseño, Elle Italy among others. Laura's works have been exhibited at Harrods London alongside the Loewe collection and at Milan Design Week, alongside the 1000 Vases platform.

About her work

“In ceramics, patience, acceptance of failure, metamorphosis and trust in the process are constantly worked on. Something that seems as simple as mud can go beyond the physical, transcending its earthly value to remind us of where we come from.”

Marina Marón

Bio

Maron has a degree in Scenography Design, Madrid and Krakow, 2017. Initiated in the arts accompanied by another mind and two hands, in the form of a duo called MARCO, from abstraction as cupid's dagger and the great master Antonio Machón, savant and totally abstract. In 2020, her artistic age of initiation ends in a third stage, the second was transition, grouping and introspection to find out the paths and her symbology, the "Floating Rooms" emerged among other things.Now the space is dissociated, abstracting its interior even more, allowing perception to invade the form.

Abstract Architectures A transfer of ideas to clay/painting, precise from the compilation that is the mind, from the intuitive unconsciousness of the continuous transit of those nooks where are stored, also unconsciously, our joys of this world. Everything is solaced in clay and paint, extolling qualities of sympathy, subtlety, strength, intelligence and the game, the latter being a curious imaginative instrument of human interaction, fierceness of mind, perhaps prior to culture or creator of her and of thoughtful smiles. Abstraction and space were united.

Natalie Rich-Fernández

Bio

After graduating from the National School of Fine Arts in Paris in 1990, Natalie Rich-Fernández immersed herself in various media, such as painting, video and stills, developing an important career as an artist. A few years ago she began to work with ceramics and this has become her main form of expression since she moved to Ibiza. In 2018, together with her husband, she founded the Galeria Tambien in Santa Gerturdis.

Her work as a painter has been exhibited at the Simone Kervern, Véronique Smagh and Hervé Van der Straeten galleries, and her video and photo work at the MEP, Paris-Photo, Arles and the “VideoFormes” digital art festival. among others. She is also part of prestigious public and private collections such as the European Museum of Photography in Paris or FNAC, and was part of the Carré D'Artiste series by Hermès.

About her work

The pieces that Natalie presents in Taula consist of elements of utilitarian objects, which have been manipulated to acquire another function. Build the pieces one by one, like a game, looking for balance and assembling them to arrive at a sculpture. Use lands of natural colours, white, terracotta, black, like the rocks of Ibiza.
