Jury Prize 2019
C14-PARIS has established a partnership with the gallery Puls – Bruxelles.
In 2020, Annette Sloth will dedicate a three-week solo show in her gallery, to the winner of the C14-PARIS 2019 ‘Jury Prize’.
Puls Contemporary Ceramics Gallery, founded by Annette Sloth more than a decade ago, exhibits only the best of international contemporary ceramics. Annette Sloth, is herself a Danish ceramist and graduate
of the world-renowned Danish School of Design. She frequently serves as a judge, curator and docent at international ceramic events. With a worldwide clientele, PULS Gallery offers the best of contemporary studio
art ceramics available anywhere to discerning collectors, museums, and of course, fi rst-time buyers.
A PULS exhibition typically shows work of an established artist alongside that of promising new talent. This platform has enabled emerging artists to put their stamp on the next generation of Ceramic Art.
PULS Gallery is the only one of its kind in Brussels. It is situated in the elegant Place du Châtelain square, an international area buzzing with galleries, bars and restaurants and within a stone’s throw of the well-known Avenue Louise with its many shops, galleries and businesses. The gallery consists of two halves: a front exhibition space with generous display windows looks out onto the square and a back space that faces the garden.
Additionally, the Annette Sloth website allows visitors to buy what she calls “collectables” which have not been physically shown in the gallery but are made exclusively for PULS by artists connected to the gallery.
Residency Prize 2019
C14-PARIS has established a partnership with Keramis – Center of Ceramics in La Louvière (Belgium).
In the spring of 2020, Keramis awards the winner of the C14-PARIS ‘Residence Award’ a 50-day residence (consecutive or fragmented nights) including access to the workshop, the provision of production equipment, specific supervision by its manager, ceramist Olivia Mortier, and on-site accommodation.
Museum, space of art and creation dedicated to ceramics, Keramis is erected on the site of the old pottery Boch in La Louvière. Its architecture, contemporary and daring, includes an old listed building of the 19th century that contains three old giant coal kilns, the last of its kind in Belgium. Opened in 2015, Keramis organizes temporary exhibitions and welcomes artists in residence.
Ludovic Recchia, founder and artistic director of Keramis, will be one of the jury members of the 2019 show.
Art historian Ludovic Recchia is curator of the decorative arts at the Royal Museum of Mariemont (BE). Specialist of Belgian ceramics of the 20th century, he is a lecturer at ENSAV (La Cambre) and member of the AIC. It is in Keramis – Center of Ceramics in La Louvière, of which he is a founding member and artistic director, that he carries out a militant action in favor of ceramic creation.
