Piet Stockmans and Frederik Vercruysse converse around the theme Blauw. Ceci n’est pas une couleur. Stockmans, master of porcelain and inventor of his famous Stockmansblauw, and Vercruysse, talented architecture and interior design photographer, inhabit the space through artistic installations and tactile and visual assemblages.
Stockmans and Vercruysse share that culture of minerality which is the focus of Spazio Nobile’s exhibitions. By reducing ornamentation in their essential and existential approach, the two creators give form to the idea of Blauw. Ceci n’est pas une couleur. More than a pigment, it is a primary colour that oscillates on the border between shadow and light: the ultramarine of cobalt, from sky to sea, from the still image to the porcelain piece.
The Fallen Vases installation and a selection of pieces from Studio Piet Stockmans will be on display at Brussels Design Market on 23-24 September. For the art works, please visit our exhibition at Spazio Nobile which opens up on Thursday 28 September,
The porcelain art from Studio Pieter Stockmans results from a combination of traditional craft production and a contemporary, experimental approach. The designer is constantly stretching the limits of porcelain. The studio on the C-Mine mine site in Genk is the specialist in Belgium offering designs in hard porcelain. Studio Pieter Stockmans has focused on limited, unique collections since 1987. Its better-known pieces include the trophy for the Memorial Vandamme and the plates for the royal wedding in Monaco. The studio is highly regarded by leading international chefs including Alain Ducasse and Lanshu Chen.
