“À force”
3 November 2023 – 22 September 2024
Nicolas Muller (France/Switzerland, 1983) is interested in the margins, the interstices, the other side of the coin. In this carte blanche offered to the artist by Musée Ariana, he evokes the nature and tangible reality of ceramic and glass collections, using techniques that are either his own or that he has developed for the occasion. In the museum’s storerooms, his attention was drawn to the crumpled tissue paper used to cushion the works during transport, to the embossed and scalloped doilies used to protect a stack of plates from rubbing, to the post-it notes and handwritten notes giving an ephemeral indication of an object or indicating its absence, and to the imprints of the works in the covering of the mobile shelving.


Yan Zoritchak
March 31, 2023 – January 21, 2024

Sculptor and master glass artist Yan Zoritchak, in Slovak Ján Zoričák (Slovakia/France, 1944), takes us into a dreamlike, phantasmagorical world with his fascinating glass sculptures. The meticulously polished surfaces and sharp contours diffract the light and give access to nebulosities, bright enamels and precious metal inclusions that lend dynamics and poetry to the geometry of the form. As through a kaleidoscope, the eye catches, dives and loses itself in this universe of transparency, light, colors and reflections.


Margareta Daepp
April 28, 2023 – September 24, 2023

Silence, rigor, freshness, color, emptiness, space. The universe of Margareta Daepp (Switzerland, 1959) is at the crossroads of these concepts. The radical simplicity of her works is dense, inhabited, quiet, poetic. Close to design, her pieces are inspired by her stays in Japan. In an architectural spatiality, ceramics dialogue with photography, corrugated iron or colored planes.
