Bouke de Vries: Virtual London Studio Tour
Ages: Adults to teens
Date/time: Saturday, Feb. 26, 3 to 4 p.m.
Description: Internationally known Dutch artist Bouke de Vries will guide us through a virtual tour of his London studio. See his large installation called War & Pieces on display at the WCMFA until March 13.
Born in Utrecht, The Netherlands, Bouke de Vries studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven and Central St. Martin’s, London. After working in the fashion industry with John Galliano, Stephen Jones, and Zandra Rhodes, he switched careers and studied ceramics conservation and restoration at West Dean College. He has been a full-time studio artist working in London since 2010.
His work in ceramic conservation — reassembling and repairing broken objects — led de Vries to a distinct style in which his primary materials are ceramic fragments and pieces, which he uses to create fascinating, and often provocative artworks that create a dialogue between our contemporary consumer culture and ceramics itself as a historic commodity.
