Artist Passe Avant Minuit

Rosemarie Auberson has collaborated with ceramic artist Juliette Teste to produce a collection of ceramic pieces titled Passe Avant Minuit, exhibited at 0fr Gallery, Paris in November 2019. Adopting a mindset of open experimentation, free from any imposed direction or meaning, the partnership resulted in a playful process of creation, with Auberson painting on the ceramic forms created by Teste. 



“I could not predict how the colours on the enamel would react during the firing of the pieces,” says Auberson, “which was interesting for me because my painting on canvas is always an attempt to realise something fairly specific that I want to see. This experience was free and joyful for both myself and Juliette. We opened ourselves to the possibility of how our work could develop with other techniques and dynamics. The result was a series of unexpected pieces, free from judgement and imposed limits. It was as if I was starting from scratch, creating anew for the first time.”
