Marie-Laure Guerrier and In-Sook Son. These are the two contemporary creators that the Baur Foundation has chosen to bring together for a period of several months in an unprecedented encounter of ceramics and textiles. Sharing “cultural” and chromatic affinities, the two artists also have in common a similar and rare manner of experimenting with transfers of materials – ceramic, textile and paint – and the desire to explore all the possibilities offered by their respective crafts.

Prolonging the pleasure of the exhibition, this catalogue contextualises the work of these two great women, whose voices, in parallel to the images, underline what unites them: advanced technical skills, an abundance of inventiveness, perseverance and a constant spiritual approach to aesthetics and the values of their works.
