A tavola con Rochester Square

From 28th October 2023 to 26th February 2024, the works created during the summer artistic residency will be exhibited in the exhibition “A tavola con Rochester Square”

The exhibition A tavola con Rochester Square opens to the public on Saturday 28th October: on the fourth and fifth floors and on the terrace of the Savona Ceramics Museum the collective works designed by the artists of Rochester SquareFrancesca Anfossi, Milan Tarascas, Ewelina Bartkowska, Lyson Marchessault, Paulina Michnowska e Lex Franchi – during a summer school residency organized at the end of August 2023 by the curators and the Museum educational service.

The summer school involved numerous artists and ceramists enrolled in the various workshops, who thus gave life to the planning of the exhibition, relying on artisan workshops and creative centers such as Studio Ernan Design, Officina Novecento, Municipal School of Ceramics of Albisola Superiore, Casa Museo Jorn and of course the laboratory of the Ceramics Museum.

Terracotta stools and large vases in raw earth and straw inspired by museum collections will be flanked by plaster casts in homage to the International Movement for an Imaginary Bauhaus, founded by Asger Jorn and Enrico Baj, decorated table utensils and dedicated pottery vases to the fermentation of foods. The main room will be set up as a banquet which will welcome the works around a large table handmade by the workshop participants themselves and which on the occasion of the inauguration of the exhibition will be transformed into a real table set available to guests who will be able to taste art with all the senses.

For the entire duration of the exhibition, a laboratory will also be active which will allow the public to try their hand at creating sculptures for the earth garden set up on the museum terrace and intended to transport the atmosphere of the Rochester Square nursery from London to the heart of Savona . The entire exhibition will revolve around three key elements, well expressed by the claim of the dynamic London studio: Clay, Food and Garden.

It will be a season with the spotlight on London. The social and convivial vision of Rochester Square’s ceramic art will alternate with the intimate and itinerant approach of Tommaso Corvi Mora‘s work: in the same period it will be possible to visit a section of the widespread exhibition Diario, a project that investigates the artistic practice of Corvi Mora, who has lived and worked in London for years, within his intimate and daily universe, through the expressive means of drawing, fabric and ceramics, which the artist has been working on since 2009.
