Created by designer-ceramist Pierre Casenove, the Dashi collection displays a chic rustic look that honors the raw material, the purity and the object in all its simplicity. Dashi celebrates the art of the imperfect object, the spectacular marriage of raw earth and ash glazes. From these unique pieces emerges a poetry of matter, a mixture of strength and softness. These creations correspond perfectly to the emergence of the imperfect, which illustrates a marked return to respect for nature, including its asperities and asperities.

Stoneware is undoubtedly the most resistant and natural ceramic. Unlike earthenware, it is waterproof and non-porous, even without glaze. As a result, it keeps food hot or cold for a long time.

The enamel is dipped with a ladle, applied with a brush or delicately sprayed by hand, the craftsman’s work is always beautiful and precise.

During Grand Feu firing, the enamel fuses with the stoneware. It then reveals its nuances, its subtle and fascinating vagaries. Each item in the Dashi collection is distinctive: “not quite the same, not quite different”. A beautiful object that knows how to stand the test of time.

The Dashi collection is available at jarsusa.com and at many fine retailers. Bowls are $79 and plates are $89. Jars USA, 802 Centerpoint Blvd., New Castle, DE 19720 https://www.jarsusa.com/

New research challenges beliefs about medieval festivals http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/new-research-challenges-beliefs-about-medieval-festivals/ Sun, 08 May 2022 21:00:50 +0000 http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/new-research-challenges-beliefs-about-medieval-festivals/

New research into food consumption in England during the pre-Viking Middle Ages challenges long-held assumptions about gluttony and carnivorous habits. The pair of complementary articles published in the journal Anglo-Saxon England explores the eating behavior of nobles and peasants using both textual references and chemical analysis of 2,023 skeletons of individuals from the same period.

“There are long-standing assumptions in archeology and history regarding elite diets in early medieval England,” the researchers said, “namely that higher-status individuals had richer diets. meatier and therefore higher in protein than the lower classes, and that this was particularly true for men compared to women.

Banquet given in Paris in 1378 by Charles V of France (centre, blue) for Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor (left) and his son Wenceslas, King of the Romans. Artwork by Jean Fouquet, 1455-1460 [Wikimedia Commons, public domain]

The trope is reliably repeated in popular film imagery, since the most recent The iron Throne to the famous representations of the Matter of Brittany such as the films The green knight (2021), Excalibur (1981), and the musical Camelot (1967). This assumption is also re-manifested in countless Renaissance festivals and medieval re-enactment events with ubiquitous turkey legs and royal feasts. But the permanent feast of the nobility and a great class difference in food consumption at this time seems to be a myth.

The first part of the research was to decipher existing food lists that survived the reign of King Ine of Wessex (c. 688-726). It is believed that the kings of this period received shape, or alimentary rent, of the free peasants of their kingdoms. One of these relics asks local farmers to provide ten vats of honey, 300 rolls, 42 buckets of beer, two oxen (or 10 sheep), 10 geese, 20 hens, 10 cheeses, a bucket of butter, 100 eels and 5 Salmon.

Bioarchaeologist Sam Leggett and his historian co-researcher Tom Lambert calculated the total caloric value of such a meal. They write, “each guest would have received 4,140 kcal from 712 g of meat (beef, mutton and poultry), an additional 300 g of fish (salmon and eel), plus cheese, honey and beer”. They found 10 other oddly similar food lists, and the researchers noted that no vegetables were listed but some were likely present.

Lambert commented, “These were not plans for everyday elite regimes as historians have assumed.”

Shape, however, is a complicated term and generally considered an operating system to support royal households. Current research suggests something quite different.

The feasts would probably have been outdoor events with huge pits roasting the meats. “We see kings going to massive barbecues hosted by free peasants,” Lambert said, “people who owned their own farms and sometimes slaves to work on them. You could compare it to a modern presidential campaign dinner in the United States. It was a crucial form of political engagement.

During these events, notes Rhys Blakely in the Times, “the nobility rubs shoulders with the peasantry”.

Regarding the amount and type of food, Leggett says, “I haven’t found any evidence that people regularly eat that much animal protein. If they were, we would find isotopic evidence of excess protein and signs of diseases like bone gout. But we just can’t find that.

There is no specific documentary evidence for this hypothesis, but the chemical signatures left in the skeletons suggest a more modest diet consisting mainly of cereals with small amounts of meat or cheese as part of daily consumption. “We should imagine a wide range of people topping bread with small amounts of meat and cheese, or eating leek and whole grain soups with some meat,” Leggett explains in their statement.

Leggett and Lambert noted in the post that more research should examine their findings. Their conclusions are based on a limited sample with specific challenges around chronology and whose skeletons are reliably those of the elite or peasant classes. But even changes in customs, classes and burial practices do not confuse the findings regarding social status and diet.

Changes in funerary and burial practices were important because they changed after the Roman period and because of new religious observances.

Researchers have noted that other beliefs about medieval food consumption seem accurate. “Particularly,” they say, “that women and young children were more likely to be hardest hit by food shortages, and there appears to be a social precedent for being served at parties and occasions. special, but the assumption of a meat-and-booze-heavy elite diet is still ubiquitous.

The research added that their dataset begins to fill in the gaps about everyday food consumption in medieval England while challenging long-held assumptions that there was an “institutionalised expropriation of the poor to feed the powerful”.

They also found in their research that people with the highest biological markers of meat consumption appeared to be Scandinavian newcomers to the area or people who were “observing religious dietary restrictions.” The increase in fish consumption, for example, may have been due to the Christianization of the region and the timing of Christian festivals.

]]> London exhibitions shine spotlight on female artists http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/london-exhibitions-shine-spotlight-on-female-artists/ Sun, 08 May 2022 16:00:00 +0000 http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/london-exhibitions-shine-spotlight-on-female-artists/

FRANCOIS SULTANE shares its seventh monthly column on arts and culture in collaboration with Malta weatherin which it presents a set of must-see international exhibitions highlighting the art of women.

Last month I said how thrilled I was by the American and British pavilions in Venice, showing the work of Simone Leigh and Sonia Boyce. The black female voice, so long suppressed in art history, is alive and well. Everywhere in Venice, the myriad of female voices, from all walks of life within contemporary art, is more than ever an essential element of our cultural dialogue throughout the world.

Whether it’s a conversation about the role of women in society or politics or a general comment on the female perspective, I for one am delighted that in London at the moment there is has several ongoing exhibitions showing the work of the most exciting female artists, whose work has continued to push the boundaries over the past decades.

Lubaina Himide

Artist Lubaina Himid is on display at Tate Modern until July 3. An artist with a powerful and poetic voice, Himid was an influential figure in black British art in the 1980s and won the Turner Prize in 2017. The Tate Modern presents Himid’s largest solo exhibition to date, incorporating new paintings and important highlights from his remarkable career.

Drawing inspiration from the artist’s interest in opera and his training in theater design, the show unfolds through a sequence of scenes asking questions about our built environment, our history, our personal relationships and our conflicts and how they shape the lives we lead.

Everyday objects, texts and sounds as well as a series of installations engage the viewer in their narration. As the artist says, “I always thought my work started when people could see it. For me, nothing begins until then.

Throughout the exhibition, Himid’s fascination with pattern is evident, no doubt due to her mother’s career as a textile designer.

Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois is another major artist heavily influenced by her family’s textile restoration business. Within a few more weeks, I urge you to go to the Hayward Gallery and see Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child – the first major retrospective of this legendary artist to focus exclusively on the works she made with fabrics and textiles during the last years of her career.

The exhibition focuses on the mid-1990s until Bourgeois’ death in 2010 and addresses identity, sexuality, family relationships, healing and memory. In his own words, the artist called “the magic power of the needle…to repair the damage” and offer “a request for forgiveness”. Like Himid, Bourgeois created a range of sculptures using everyday household objects and textiles, including clothing, linens and fragments of tapestry. Comprising around 90 works, one of the most notable pieces is the monumental Cellules de Bourgeois, in which hanging configurations of old dresses, slips and nightwear allude directly to his personal history.

In the exhibition, many figurative sculptures lack limbs and heads or have fantastical bodies reminiscent of disturbing fairy tale characters.

Cornelia Parker

Cornelia Parker’s first major exhibition in London opens at Tate Britain on May 18. Like Himid, Parker first came to prominence in the 1980s with his large-scale suspended installations. Cold dark matter: an exploded view (1991), which shows a garden shed frozen at the moment of the explosion, remains one of the most compelling pieces I have seen in decades.

Like the other artists featured in this month’s column, Parker uses all sorts of found and everyday objects with which to create his works which are immersive, questionable and span multiple media, from sculpture, film and photography to design.

'Cold Dark Matter – An Exploded View' by Cornelia Parker‘Cold Dark Matter – An Exploded View’ by Cornelia Parker

Parker manages to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. His most recent work Crisis unit (2015) is a coin-sized work created from the reams of perforated red paper negatives left over from the hugely successful Royal British Legion Memorial Poppies. Magna Carta (an embroidery) 2015 is a 13-meter-long hand-stitched embroidery of a Wikipedia page, which involved more than 250 volunteers, including public figures, human rights lawyers, politicians and prisoners.

Like her fellow artists, Parker mixes societal and political commentary in her work, and in 2017 she was the first woman to be named an official artist for the UK general election.

Stay tuned for the next monthly cultural column in June. If you want to find out what I do each month, follow me on Instagram @francis_sultana.

Macron invested for a second term http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/macron-invested-for-a-second-term/ Sat, 07 May 2022 10:45:00 +0000 http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/macron-invested-for-a-second-term/

Macron promised a more inclusive and understanding style of government. (AFP photo)

PARIS: French President Emmanuel Macron was sworn in for a second term on Saturday after his election victory over the far right, facing immense foreign and domestic policy challenges after a first term that had often polarized the nation.

In a ceremony at the Elysee Palace, Macron was confirmed by the head of the Constitutional Council Laurent Fabius as the winner of the April presidential election, then signed the official document of re-investiture.

Attended by a few hundred people, including his wife Brigitte and his only predecessors François Hollande and Nicolas Sarkozy, the ceremony was relatively modest but marked the first time that a French leader had served a second term in 20 years.

Macron faces an ambitious agenda of implementing the reforms he promised when he came to power as France’s youngest president in 2017, as well as dealing with the Russian onslaught on Ukraine.

He also indicates a more inclusive and understanding style of decision-making after his first term saw critics complain that the former investment banker had abrasive and arrogant ways.

“I vow to build a more livable planet, a more lively France and a stronger France,” he said in a speech at the Elysee Palace, swearing a “new method” to govern.

According to a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages, 21 cannon shots must be fired from the Invalides military memorial to celebrate the inauguration.

Without a car on the Avenue des Champs-Elysees or a long red carpet, the ceremony resembled the reinaugurations of François Mitterrand in 1988 and Jacques Chirac in 2002, the last French president to win a second term.

Macron’s second term will not officially begin until the first expires at midnight on May 13.

PM dilemma

He is expected to continue to play a leading role in efforts to end Russia’s war on Ukraine, as he carries an immense burden of expectations as a leader on the European stage, the Germany still finding its place in the post-Angela Merkel era.

Domestically, Macron must deal with the crisis of the rising cost of living and also prepare for possible protests when he finally tackles his cherished pension reform, raising the retirement age. in France.

Macron won the second round of presidential elections on April 24 with a score of 58.55% over his far-right rival Marine Le Pen.

The ceremony comes at a time of political flux following Macron’s election victory, as France prepares for the legislative elections that will soon follow in June.

Macron is expected to appoint a new prime minister in place of incumbent Jean Castex to lead a reshuffled government until elections, but not before the official start of his second term.

He has offered to appoint a female politician focused on social responsibility – although reports have said overtures to left-leaning figures, such as former official Véronique Bedague and Socialist parliamentary group leader Valérie Rabault, have been rebuffed .

“If there was an obvious solution for the Matignon (the prime minister’s residence), it would have been announced a long time ago,” a source close to Macron, who requested anonymity, told AFP.

Meanwhile, the Socialist Party, with the Greens and the Communists, forms an unprecedented alliance for the legislative elections with the extreme left party La France insoumise (LFI) of Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

He was by far the most successful leftist candidate in the first round of presidential elections and is spearheading efforts to form a broad bloc and mount a convincing challenge to Macron.

Pro-Macron factions have banded together under the banner of Ensemble (Together) while his own La République en Marche party, which is struggling to create a popular base, rebrands itself as Renaissance.

Neil Hamamoto: I’ve carried an iPhone with me almost every day since 2008 when I was 15.

I believe it was through this process that I developed my interests and tastes which became the impetus for my first real acquisition.

EF: Do you have a defining theme for your collection?

NH: As an artist, I don’t like to feel confined. Defining my collection looks too much like that. I certainly have a preference for the objects that I wish to acquire and with which to live, but nothing formalized. My interests tend to align with artists working in medium to large scale three dimensions. And I also love artists who center materials and processes in their work.

EF: Which designers/artists inspire you at the moment?

NH: Kennedy Yanko, Hugh Hayden, Miles Greenberg and Sayre Gomez and all the artists WORTHLESSSTUDIOS works with: Tanda Francis, Michael Zelehoski, Behin Ha Design, Caroline Mardok, Tony Dibernardo and KaN Site Curators.

EF: What are the current collectible trends on your radar, if any?

NH: I’m not too interested in following trends, but I currently pay close attention to artists with grassroots practices whose work engages communities with public art like Hank Willis Thomas, Theaster Gates, Titus Kaphar, Dustin Yellin, Mark di Suvero. These are the artists we will talk about when we look back to that time.

EF: Does the marketplace help you discover?

NH: It can certainly help, but it can also hurt my discovery process. Trade shows, newsletters, Instagram are all sources of information that feed the market place. Unfortunately, I find myself spending time digesting these sources instead of going through experience, adventures, exploration, chance, manifestation. COVID didn’t help either.

EF: In terms of discovering new artists/designers, what are your trusted methods?

NH: As artistic director at WORTHLESSSTUDIOS, I am in constant contact with artists. Our mission is to support the making and production needs of artists as they experiment and work, so we host open calls and events to foster idea sharing and creative criticism. I have discovered so many amazing artists and work concepts through this process.

EF: What’s the next piece on your radar?

NH: I’m more in an art-generating mindset than an art-buying mindset right now. The next work I will do revolves around American trucking and road infrastructure.

EF: What’s the last piece you bought?

NH: A Nate Lowman painting!

EF: What is the part that escaped?

NH: Nothing escaped! It just lives in my iPhone collection.

Lego Group will triple the size of its digital team http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/lego-group-will-triple-the-size-of-its-digital-team/ Thu, 05 May 2022 18:59:07 +0000 http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/lego-group-will-triple-the-size-of-its-digital-team/

Diving Brief:

  • To accelerate its digital transformation, The Lego Group has announced plans to triple the size of its digital team to over 1,800 employees over the next three years, according to a press release.
  • The toy company’s new digital office in Copenhagen will accommodate up to 400 employees, adding to its list of existing digital offices in Billund, London and Shanghai, which will also expand.
  • “Our digital transformation is one of the most significant investments the Lego Group will make in a generation,” Atoul Bhardwajchief digital and technology officer, said in a statement.

Overview of the dive:

The target audience of Lego kids are more digitally connected than ever before, and this multi-year investment shows the company is acutely aware of this.

“The Lego brick will always be at the heart of our business, but we are seeing great success in making Lego a digital brand from new ways to play, buy and do business,” Bhardwaj said in a statement.

The opening of the Copenhagen digital office follows the announcement last month that Lego is partnering with video game company Epic Games to create a kid-friendly metaverse space which emphasizes security and privacy. Lego also released a new video game last month, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Sagaadding to his list of virtual touchpoints with his audience.

Knowing its core customer base, the retailer has uniquely positioned itself as an advocate for child safety in digital spaces. Lego announced in April that it was working with UNICEF to start responsible innovation in technology for children project to help businesses and policy makers create digital worlds that put the well-being of children first.

The toy industry has been doing well for a few years, with U.S. Toy Retail Sales Generating $28.6 Billion in 2021, a 13% year-over-year increase, according to The NPD Group. Lego’s decision to diversify its product offerings paid off in 2021, as consumer sales increased by 22% compared to 2020. Its digital retail sales specifically grew by double digits. However, the retailer has always bet big on its in-store presence, opening of 165 new stores in 2021.
