Sam Baron. In Black

Präsentation der Sammlung

Sam Baron is a freelance designer who is interested in the cultural dimension inherent in objects, whether it be the process of craft fabrication or historical formal references. He deploys a poetic landscape composed of 65 varnished ceramic elements through the mural installation In Black that is a recent addition to the Collection. This piece was inspired by traditional Portuguese glazed ceramic production, picking up on vernacular forms inspired by nature. He presents these cheap popular objects in a new light by depriving them of their realistic painted decor. In accordance with his previous work, he pays homage to an existing repertoire while offering a contemporary functionality and thus affirms his position when faced with contemporary production that is so excessive and extravagant in an era when everything has already been produced.
