With its CeCiL’s Box project, Cercle Cité welcomes creations in one of its windows on rue du Curé. This project aims to present varied and original interventions to the public, and is also a way to support local creation by offering visibility to guest artists. These interventions are visible 7 days a week, day and night.
The sixth intervention is entrusted to the ceramist artist Emilceramic. It is during a retrospective exhibition by Joseph Probst in 2011 that Emilceramic discovers, in those very same window-displays at the Cercle Cité, Colette Probst-Wurth’s ceramics (1928-2008), an artist to whom he pays tribute in his installation “CPW” at CeCiL’s Box. From there emerges a passion for clay – which he quickly learns to master through several internships and apprenticeships – as well as one for a time period; that of post-war French ceramic creation, which also incorporates the works of Colette Probst-Wurth. Picasso himself is a worthy representative of this artistic movement, as he settles down in Vallauris in 1948 and collaborates with Suzanne and Georges Ramié, from the Madoura studio. In his installation, Emilceramic is inspired by these sources to create a poetic, experimental and playful display.
