How do I get there?


Inspired by the faces and figures that inhabit our daily lives, Florent Dubois, ceramist, draftsman and painter, creates festive and colorful forms, fueled by his love for the grotesque, masks, farandoles and music.

“Florent Dubois gives his ceramics titles like first names. Within the growing population that they constitute, each facies comes to formulate a state of the inexhaustible register of the expressions of the living. Her trinkets have character. Hollow forms, they are poltergeists having temporarily taken up residence in a clay shell, before possessing another.

All put on facial expressions to better play actresses, portraying fluctuating affections, immortalized in the mute and frozen earth. The costume should allow for exuberance.

Often equipped with spouts and handles, the objects flirt with the pejorative vocabulary of the dust catcher. Covering up, hiding, disguising or deceiving allow you to exist for a moment, by making yourself known or, on the contrary, by trying not to be recognized.

Glory and anonymity crystallize the ambivalent desires at play on the web. Imbued with narcissism, the social theater of the networks becomes a vast masked ball. And for pitchers, sharing content is a shame. »
