Camille Blatrix: No School
With Dorothée Loriquet & François Blatrix
Hosted in a show by Camille Blatrix
Scenography by Camille Blin

In 2014, Blatrix was awarded the prestigious Prix d’entreprise Ricard, which annually gives a monetary prize to an emerging French artist whose work has been exhibited at the Foundation’s space in Paris. For the 16th edition of the award, the Foundation wished to honour the artist with a solo show outside France. The exhibition in MOSTYN, a UK premiere, presents entirely new work by the artist and responds to his visit to the town of Llandudno in 2014. For the show, Blatrix has invited his parents Dorothée Loriquet (a ceramicist) and François Blatrix (formerly an artist) to present their own work alongside his own, hosted within a scenography developed by Camille Blin. The exhibition discusses the role of biography, influence, upbringing and artistic career, setting the tone for MOSTYN’s ongoing Conversation Series, a sequence of shows that brings together exhibitions in conversation.

The exhibition is curated by Alfredo Cramerotti (MOSTYN Director) and produced by MOSTYN, Wales UK and Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, Paris with further support by Fluxus Art Projects. An illustrated, limited edition artist book will accompany the exhibition, featuring essays by Camille Blatrix and Alfredo Cramerotti.
