Calendari taula. Sèrie: Objectes enfangats, 1980

Table Calendar. Series: Muddied Objects, 1980
Object, 7 x 19 x 16 cm

Pere Noguera picks up on the industrial tradition of ceramics and terracotta in his hometown of La Bisbal de l’Empordà, updating it through concepts and actions. He applies his knowledge of the processes of this ancestral craft as a method for contemporary sculpture. This was done whether covering objects for everyday use with clay, like a heather broom or a comb, or using a technique he called enfangada, or muddying, a notion he himself invented at the end of the 1970s. Noguera creates installations of objects and then covers them with liquid clay, letting them dry naturally. Besides repressing colours and equalising the differences between things, the idea of process and fragility takes precedence over anything permanent. Matter and its processes in this way address the condition of an event.
