Adélie Ducasse is a self-taught artist who specializes in the creation of ceramic light sculptures.
She is interested in the possibility of modulating this material, as well as in the bright, bold colors of earthenware.
She creates a construction by assembling simple geometric shapes (round, cone and rectangle) in sequences of colors, associating them mathematically. Her work is a cross between two great contradictory inspirations: the Bauhaus (German school founded in 1919) and the Memphis group (Italian design school founded in the 1980s).
By reinterpreting the codes of these two artistic groups, she manages to draw on the simplicity of the Bauhaus lines as well as on the rhythmic color sequences of the Memphis group.
The use of bright and contrasting colors gives dynamism to the simple and geometric forms of her sculptures.
Adélie Ducasse presents here a special edition (limited to 8 pieces) for which the choice of colors and rhythms has been specially thought out and created for this exhibition.
Adélie also refers here to the Casa Salvati of 1972, an immersion in the colored geometries of architects Alberto Salvati and Ambrogio Tresoldi.
