Pottery, an ancient invention of mankind and traditionally practiced in Luxembourg and Dubai, is a form of craft that refers to the symbolic idea of human unity. In the installation Artefacts, the traditional method of making pottery is reinterpreted through the use of 3D printing. Inspired by the Péckvillecher, traditional Luxembourg handmade clay whistles in the shape of birds, Julie Conrad designed an installation of a large group of clay objects from Nospelt for the Luxembourg pavilion in Dubai. Reactive to the movements and interaction of visitors, this cloud of objects resonates and immerses the passer-by in a parallel universe. The objects react individually but also as a whole, creating an installation capable of interacting with several people at the same time, forming a unique melody that unites the public. The work communicates with visitors through a universal language, capable of connecting minds, by emphasising auditory and visual sensations.
