The rapid evolution of ceramics will be on display at Tecnargilla 2016 in the “Ceramic Bang”, the exhibition section on new trends in materials, technology and aesthetics in the ceramics industry, curated by the Azzolini Tinuper firm of architects.
The title, which evokes the explosion of primordial matter that created the Earth, aims to recall the evolution of the world of ceramics, from its origins to the ultra-high-definition material of today. Taking centre stage therefore are both colour and material.
The exhibition brings material aspects together with the space dedicated to Colour Trends this year, through three dedicated areas:
Ceramic Bang! as technology: The first trend proposed takes its cue from gravitational waves to provide aesthetic-technological ideas and solutions with great dynamic and energy content. Effects of depth in two dimensions, layering, wrinkling of space expanded and compressed by the waves and lights that highlight the nuances are thus intertwined
Ceramic Bang! as colour: The second trend is the chromatic disorder that propagates at random. Colour rotates and creates graphical spaces with varying degrees of complexity and the surface is composed freely in a varying ratio of empty and full spaces
Ceramic Bang! as decoration: Involuntary motion generates unnatural decorations: imperfect, out-of-synch knots, irregular, out-of-line decorations characterize this space where defects and dissonance are prized
The exhibition on trends in colour, as usual part of the “Ceramic Workshop” macro section at the entrance to Tecnargilla, will instead host the following sections:
IED Lab: Showcased will be special projects that make alternative use of ceramic materials, realized by the Istituto Europeo del Design in Milan
Faenza Artistic Ceramics Museum Area: Some of the most representative pieces from the collections will be on display to illustrate the history of ceramics in the last 30 years
Tecnargilla Design Award: Presented are submissions to the fourth edition of the Tecnargilla Design Awards. The awards were set up to recognize the most innovative technologies, applications and materials used in the ceramic industry.
