"MECANOFOLIE"
2000-02-18 until 2000-04-24
Sarreguemines Faience & Majolica Museums
Sarreguemines, , FR France

Jean Fontaine, a ceramist sculptor who is well known in the ceramic art world, is back in Sarreguemines. After Terres du Fantastique and Zoofolie, he will be presenting his new travelling exhibition Mecanofolie from 18 February to 24 April 2000.

The world of this sculptor is inhabited by hybrid creatures with suggestive names, such as Métaphoreuse, Cyclotron and Viole de Gambettes. An intricate tangle of bodies, animals and heavy mechanical parts, his ceramic chimera blend life and machinery, with humour, perspiration and engine grease. These astonishing creatures disclose a phantasmagoric world and illustrate a mythology of the future.
