Marsèlleria presents the first Italian solo show by artist Morgane Tschiember (1976) curated by Geraldine Blais, produced in collaboration with STABILA and STYLNOVE, partners of NUOVE//Residency, artist residency program in the industrial district in Nove (Vicenza).
Morgane Tschiember imagines a new body of works, stemmed from her recent experience in the two companies devoted to the production and manufacturing of earthenware and focuses on the analysis of the generative and processual nature of earth as material
Across two floors of the space of Marsèlleria in via Paullo, the artist presents a reflection on sculptural volumes, in a dialogue between industrial production and tradition.
