Inutile de lutter contre la tectonique des plaques, la progression de la croûte terrestre est inéluctable. Elle génère des secousses sismiques qui, lorsqu'elles sont assez significatives, provoquent des tremblements à la surface de la Terre. Rien n'y résiste, aucune maison, aucune assiette, aucun vase, sauf le travail humain qui est là pour reconstruire, recoller, et finalement sublimer ces vestiges de l'antiquité. La définition de l’exposition est ici littérale : Morabito fait de la multitude de pièces éparpillées une unité dans l’œuvre.
Contraste des matières et des âges, choc des traditions, mise en opposition de deux matières, la première ancienne, traditionnelle, archéologique, rehaussée de glacis, d’un bleu un peu passé, d’un céladon, d’un noir profond ou de dessins consacrés à la céramique chinoise, la seconde, moderne, immaculée, matte, neutre, blanche ou de couleurs vives, jaune, bleu, rouge.
Pascal Morabito aime ou provoque les marques du temps, les cassures, les brisures, les fêlures, les brûlures, les coupures pour en extraire la poésie du hasard et y insuffler une énergie nouvelle. Une deuxième vie.

Needless to fight against the tectonic plates, the growth of the crust is inevitable. It generates earthquakes that when significant enough, causes powerful tremors on the surface of the Earth. Nothing can resist it: no house, no plate, no vase can withstand it. It is only when the human works to rebuild, pick up, and finally sublimate the remains of their antiquity. The definition of explosion here is literal: Morabito makes the multitude of scattered pieces a unity in his art.
Contrasted materials and ages, shock traditions, clashing two mediums.
The first old, traditional, archaeological, enhanced glaze, a faded blue, a celadon, deep black or drawings dedicated to Chinese ceramics.
The second, modern, immaculate, matte, neutral, white or bright colors, yellow, blue, red.
Pascal Morabito appreciates and emphasises the signs of aging: every wrinkle, chip, crack, burn,and cut are used to extract the poetry of chance and infuse new energy. Giving them “A second life”.

Special thanks to Courtney for the English translation :)
