Project description

The subject of the project is to bring ceramics and porcelain into everyday life. The result is activities focused on artistic freedom, the openness of society towards other countries, ideas, women, and minorities. The SNM-Ľudovít Štúr Museum in Modra together with the partner Telemark Museum from Norway are preparing exhibitions that shall "cross borders". Ceramics from Slovakia will come to Norway and porcelain from Porsgrunn will come here. Another activity is a symposium of artists in cooperation with the Slovak Folk Majolica Modra. Artists from Norway and Slovakia will create and present their views on everyday life and current social challenges through their work. A new innovative exhibition "From Pitcher to Figural Creation" is also being prepared, at which famous master figural painters and authors from minority groups will be given space. The city of Modra will receive a design manual for the historic center, ceramic elements in the city, and a laser performance at a public building. The project will culminate in the festival Clay Festival – Ceramic Modra in the autumn of 2022.
