We are pleased to announce an exhibition impermanent papers materiality of colors by Karima Duchamp on July 26 (Thu) to 28 (Sat), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Karima Duchamp is a visual artist based in France. She graduated with a Master degree in Fine Arts and a Ceramic Diploma. Her practice relies on a sensitive combination of drawing, painting ans sculptural ceramics as well as by the enigmatic and subbtle presentation of their picturesque motifs. She is interested in color, the way color fades, patines, wear and ages.
Her work has been shown across Europe and worldwide :the Salon Art+Design in New York, Design Miami in the USA, in China, in Germany, in Spain, in Belgium, in Switzerland during Art Design Basel.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
The unique landscapes of Itoshima broaden Karima Duchamp artistic practice and help develop new projects that are directly related to the lexicon of these distinct geographies.
She highlights the vulnerability of the natural environment and its impending destruction. She visually illustrates how delicate and fleeting nature can be. Simple, these materials possess an expressive power, as if they emerged as much from the landscape they were inspired by.
“In Impermanent art, the beauty resides in an alternative space to the tradition idea of beauty. It isn’t bound to an object as the object being observed transforms producing dynamic art.” Helen Plumb, impermanent art – the essence of beauty in imperfection
