Ann Linnemann
The idea of the exhibition started with my travels in Italy, where 'Trompe l'oeil' caught my eyes.
The painted illusions of windows, relief and frames, where the real ones 'are missing' on the façade. Wikipedia: Trompe-l'oeil
This made my imagination wander with different ideas of space and form, thinking of concepts of reality and truth in relation to illusion.

Is reality the same, equal? Can you imagine mine? Is my illusion your reality? What is true? Doors and windows lead through the wall to the other side regardless of culture, philosophy or religion. The World is measured in horizontal and vertical lines. We can construct a perspective, but what are illusions?
I worked with a nearby and physical truth, my view from a couple of blind windows in the exhibition space.
I imagined the view, but thinking of different times and visions, and kept the idea of a physical space in my perspective drawing made in ceramic pastels with glaze-painted parts on large tiles and figure-jars in porcelain.

The picturesque ruins of Pompei and the casts of the people have for a long time been on my mind.
It is a pocket of time, a moment kept for ever.
I combined the painted 'illusions', landscapes and windows in porcelain with the rough casts of the window panels and figures in a grey stoneware.

Clay is a ductile soft material when it is wet as well as when the firing temperature influences the melting process, freezes the moment when the clay cools again.

3 - 25 FEBRUARY ILLUSION Ann Linnemann DK
"The idea of the exhibition started with travels in Italy, where 'Trompe l'oeil' caught my eyes. The painted illusions of windows, relief and frames, where the real ones 'are missing' on the façades. I took this idea into my own life and space, and created an illusion of 'missing' views in my surroundings." See the exhibition - LINK

2 - 24 MARCH HELIOTROPES Mikael Jackson and Jens-Rune Gissel DK
Geometric ceramic forms are stage props and actors in picturesque stories. This exhibition of collaborative pieces shows the sketches by painter Jens Rune playing in a lively 'unfinished' way with Mikael Jacksons strictly geometric hand-formed ceramic shapes. See the exhibition - LINK

Esben Klemanns core area of expression is clearly defined by his interest in architecture, construction and material, – a constant desire to further the development of process is the main importance in his finished pieces. - See the exhibition - LINK

3 - 26 MAY GRAPHIC TALES Lisbeth Holst-Jensen DK
A ceramic composition of graphic images in interaction with oval forms. The graphic vessels and 'image-plates' reflect Lisbeth Holst-Jensen's experience with the tactile possibilities of the ceramic material, knowledge of art history and artistic curiosity linked to a great passion for music. - See the exhibition - LINK

1- 30 NOVEMBER CERAMICS AND PRINT - NARRATIVES Paul Scott UK & guest artists
Paul Scott is an artist best known for his research into ceramics and print. He creates individual pieces that are exacting and critical, blurring the boundaries between fine art and design. In the twenty years since the first edition of Paul Scott's handbook Ceramics and Print appeared, printed surfaces have become commonplace in contemporary practice. To co-incide with the imminent publication of a completely new edition of the book, this exhibition on narratives in ceramic print will involve leading international figures in the field.
