CERAMIC 68 (2020) is a work that defy clear categorization. Sébastien de Ganay consciously places his works between art and design, between sculpture and object, in order to question processes of perception and categorizations. As a representative of experimental painting and sculpture, de Ganay combines abstract, representational and functional elements into objects with a painterly aesthetic in this series of works. He forms two cylinders for each CERAMIC, between which he places a round plate as a connecting element, whereby the glaze of the lower cylinder differs in color from the upper two parts. The artist often experiments with basic geometric structures, which he combines with influences from the world of everyday objects. The ceramics are reminiscent of vases or lamp stands and create a feeling of abstract familiarity that playfully challenges the viewer to participate in the mental game.
