Nendo Galerie is dedicated to modern and contemporary ceramics, with the aim of establishing permanent links between the utilitarian and the fine arts.

In order to foster conversations and exchanges between different approaches to ceramics, the exhibition program will alternate between sculptors who have made ceramics a medium of expression and ceramists working on domestic forms. A rotating selection of sculptures and objects will also be on permanent display at the gallery.

The ambition of the program and the gallery’s research is international, with an important opening towards Asia and Latin America, as well as towards scenes still little considered in France, such as the Netherlands or eastern Europe.

Decadence of the Rockery Maker

June 30 – August 20, 2022

The very nature of Raphaël Emine’s recent work renders the analogy of the rockery tempting; since from the Renaissance, this delicious sweet has been seen swarming in tasteful gardens, albeit a bit crazy, caves, bridges, kiosks, barriers and other rocks made in stone or later cement. (…)

Volcanesque. Eruptive Ceramics

April 23 – June 19, 2022

Glazes appearing to be in fusion, lava effects, irregularity of surfaces at times animated from the crevices mimicking a possible topography, assumed drippings and occasionally fatty… Called « Fat lava », a significant part of the German ceramic creation from the 1950’s to the 1970’s, (…)
