_ APRIL 26TH 
Rising Warmth, a reading room hosted by Caveat

During this Reading Room, we'll come together around the research of Clémentine Vaultier on heat and fire as a transformative/performative culture-producing process.

“ Vaultier compiles a research document that combines (art) historic and anthropological facts and fictions, imagery that was found online, the artist's own sketches, and life experiments connecting interests and methods such as food preparation, ceramics, and material research in relation to contemporary dynamics and discourse around artisanal production and alternative community building. It reflects on the intertwinement between the chemical, technical and the cultural: indeed, warmth was looked at as a physical phenomenon as well as a social feeling. The editorial principle follows a graph showing a rising temperature. “

it’s a show with Caroline Andrin and Etienne Fleury at the Ceramic museum

“Next to producing hand-made ceramic swimming pool miniatures, I am currently working on a found footage documentary video on the ceramic glazing technique and history, using the switch from sand to glass to question the limits of natural and cultural, of the notions of porosity and permeability. “

JURY FEEDBACKS

“Clémentine presents a set up that seems simple at first glance. She is welcoming the jury and spectators to gather on a round woolen carpet. A video is shown that documents the making of a ceramic oven. A joyful participatory project that she carried out with fellow students. The video explains her interest in heat and fire as a transformative culture producing process. A workbook expands the subject by combining historic facts and fictions, imagery that was found online and other elements in a unity in which temperature is the editorial principle.

  The structure of the book, organized around rising temperatures, conveys a deep reflection on the entwinement between the chemical and the cultural. It is at once an intellectually exciting piece and one that leaves much room open to the viewer’s imagination thanks to the vitality of its aesthetics. “

_ "Thermodynamics is the branch of physics that deals with heat and temperature, and their relation to energy, work, radiation, and properties of matter. It applies to a wide variety of topics in science. Historically, thermodynamics developed out of a desire to increase the efficiency of early steam engines.”
