Mémoires de Formes

What does memory consist of ? Feelings, actions, shapes and colors. These elements belong to a reality that took place in the past, they are clear or rather blurred, but they assure us that we’re alive. Time gradually splits these moments in images that influence our behaviours and actions. So we might ask: are these memories reliable ?
Mémoires de Formes wants to show the tension between reality and imagination, by proposing a combination of felt and porcelain in order to appreciate the characteristics of one material thanks to the other.
During the firing process, the felt soaked of porcelain is burned out from the shape which get deformed from its original one, in that case from a standard felt model every ceramic pieces are unique like every memory.
