ITURRI Marc, ceramist

Marc Iturri is an artist who uses beautiful clay to create containers whose simple shape is reminiscent of the most archaic vessels. However, his intentions are far from a common ceramic. You have to get close, very close, to distinguish a small chair, a tiny porcelain figure, narrative elements perched on the rim of his pots. Like a leitmotif, in all his pieces, a small ladder plunges or climbs the finely engulfed interior walls of colour that contrast with the naked brutality of the exterior volume. From then on, his pieces read like a landscape where a narrative unfolds. Tragic or happy tale according to one's philosophy: a tiny human being trapped in an arid world or a human being freed by a ladder that opens the door to new universes.
