Ophelia Derely

During her childhood, Ophelia studied art at the Museum of Modern Art in Villeneuve d’Ascq. After studying humanities in Tournai, the Fine Arts schools of Tourcoing and Bourges confirmed her vision, and she learnt ceramics with Agnes Chapelet. In 2010, the International Wood Firing Meetings obliged her to build her own kiln. Slightly modified turning signs its imprint on the utilitarian ware. Modelling is the basis of her personal approach to heads. She explores the human soul nestled in its skull, this infernal discotheque of our desires and vanities. The skull is a container, a special spacecraft with its orbits, its black holes and is above all a terra incognita.
