“Rings of View” by Cecil Kemperink
Until September 29th it will be possible to visit the personal exhibition of the Dutch artist Cecil Kemperink, winner of the “Open to Art” award, organised by Officine Saffi Milan and of which the Monregalese museum, directed by Christiana Fissore, is a partner, which chose to host the artist and to curate a review at the end. This project is the refined combination of textile and ceramic arts that is the theme of the “Rings of view” exhibition: protagonists large ceramic meshes, which are movable and ringing, with a great evocative power.
The contrasts and the welds become kaleidoscopes and the expressive possibilities of her moving sculptures merely amplify a play of references, quotations and evocations. Cecil Kemperink from June 19th worked in the UP, the internal Production Unit of the Museum, where she realised the complete ceramics processing cycle. The work of this artist recalls the history of the Museum. An example is that of the rooms in which the art of lace blends with that of the production of crockery, where lace becomes stamps for the decoration of ceramics.
Cecil Kemperink was born in Almelo (Holland) in 1963 and she works and lives on the island of Texel (Holland). After graduating, she dedicated herself to the art of the lathe, thus beginning a path of in-depth knowledge, accompanied by what the artist calls “the urgency of speaking through clay”. From those first laps of the wheel of the lathe, the creative universe of the artist began and expanded, first with small decoration works and soon with large installations and the production of art objects. Cecil Kemperink’s works are the expression of his many passions: fabrics, clay, dance, fashion and sculpture. The artist has produced installations, performances and fashion shows. His works have been exposed in Italy, in South Korea (ROK), in Japan (Mino), in France (Biennial of Vallauris) and in several international museums and galleries. Some works are to enter permanent collections, for example in Korea Ceramic Foundation (KOCEF collection), in the CODA Museum (Netherlands), The Foundation for Contemporary Ceramic Arts in Kecskemét (Hungary), but also in many private collections.
