Tessons Exquis is a human, plastic and sonic experience paying homage to contemporary ceramics, by reusing the waste of fifteen female ceramists to transform it into jewellery.

For several years now, Julie Decubber (1984) devotes herself to the sacralization of a non-precious material, the fine earthenware plate, which she transforms into a precious object. She takes out jewelry and curious objects (adornments, brooches, rings...), each time unique pieces made by hand.

Julie Decubber continues her ceramic explorations here by offering an immersion in the eclectic world of contemporary ceramics. Fifteen fellow ceramists entrusted him with their waste, this sensitive material, doomed to disappear. Julie Decubber pays homage to them by creating a collection of fifteen "jewelry-portraits", using their shards as material, thus revealing the personalities of the ceramists superimposed on hers, like exquisite corpses. The fragments, which have become jewels, maintain a new link, that of the intimate relationship. Halfway between jewel and documentary, this project is enveloped in a soundscape, directed by Laure-Anne Bomati and captured during meetings in the field, punctuated by witness photographs.
