Camil’s work is in the permanent collection of Salomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, La Colección Jumex, Mexico, Blanton Museum of Art, Austin (USA), and at the Kadist collection amongst others.

Camil’s work is usually associated to the mexican urban landscape, the aesthetic language of modernism and its relationship to retail and advertising. Recently she has engaged in public participation as a way to activate the work and engage with the politics of consumerism.
Through her work Pia Camil has shown a proclivity to failure or the decaying associated to the mexican urban landscape, aspects of modernist culture and traces of art history. Her practice has explored the urban ruin – including paintings and photographs of halted projects along Mexico’s highways (highway follies); abandoned billboards that become theatre-like curtains therefore theatricalizing failed capitalist strategies (espectaculares), or the problems and contradictions that arise when engaging with iconic art works (No A trio A or Cuadrado Negro).

Ríe ahora, Llora despúes

“Que se passe-t-il lorsque cet espace, un espace de clarté de pensée, un espace expressif, que Vivian Gornick décrit comme un rectangle chatoyant, s’ouvre si largement qu’il se déverse dans le monde ? Il s’agit d’un processus personnel de pensée et de création, plutôt que d’un processus purement conceptuel. La porosité : il y a le risque, il y a l’instinct et la vulnérabilité. Boîtes de plaisir. Et de la douleur”.

“What happens when this space, a space of clarity of thought, an expressive space, which Vivian Gornick describes as a shimmering rectangle, opens so wide it pours forth into being in the world? This is a personal process of thinking and coming into being, rather than a purely conceptual one. Porousness: there is risk, there is gut, and vulnerability. Boxes of pleasure. And pain.”

Olivier Millagou arpente les plages de la Méditerranée, non loin de chez lui à Sanary sur mer. Elles sont devenues un studio à ciel ouvert. Nous lui attribuons aisément cette localité car, depuis plusieurs années, il met sur pied une technique de fabrication de moules à partir du sable qui s’y trouve, et qu’il creuse. Il en résulte ses sculptures totémiques. Pour Eco Plush, une série de peluches en céramique, le principe est inverse. Il ne s’agit pas ici de creuser le sol pour y faire un moule mais bien de collecter les peluches pour les évider. La forme est celle du jouet et, à travers lui, se dessine d’autres histoires, à commencer, peut-être par la perte de notre enfance. Les peluches, qu’elles soient Mickey ou Teletubbies, racontent une technique de divertissement dépassé à l’ère du tout numérique tout comme elles incitent, en creux, à une plus grande implication de la main dans la manipulation de la terre nécessaire à la technique de la céramique.

Olivier Millagou walks the beaches of the Mediterranean, not far from his home in Sanary sur mer. They have become an open-air studio. We easily attribute this locality to him because, for several years, he has been developing a technique of making molds from the sand that is there, and that he digs. The result is his totemic sculptures. For EcoPlush, a series of ceramic plush toys, the principle is the reverse. It is not a question here of digging the ground to make a mold, but of collecting the plushs to hollow it out. The shape is that of the toy and, through it, other stories emerge, starting, perhaps, with the loss of our childhood. Plushs toys, whether Mickey or Teletubbies, tell of an entertainment technique out of date in the digital age just as they encourage, in the hollow, greater involvement of the hand in the manipulation of the earth necessary for the technique. ceramics.
