Treasure Bowl Collections I-II is a very unique collection in contemporary ceramics. It is the culmination of a precious collaboration between international artists (10 for each edition) and a curator, all members of the AIC.
The curation of the first edition, developed between 2016 and 2018 under the theme Native Clay , was entrusted to South Korean curator Misun Rheem. Ludovic Recchia, curator director of Keramis signed the curatorship of the second edition carried by the theme of Appropriation . Thus, to imagine the bowls on display today, the 10 artists were confronted this time with a set of 18 ceramics borrowed from the collections of 2 Belgian museums: the Royal Museum of Mariemont and Keramis.
