Yves Kiln 10

LIMITED

Installed in a Milanese palazzo during Milan Design week, the 12 unique works are made from extruded clay. Alvarez calls the project Yves Kiln – a play on words that references both the ceramic firing process and the blue colour, which was first mixed by French artist Yves Klein in the 1960s. The pieces are made by pushing clay through a three-tonne ceramic press that Alvarez constructed himself, called The Extruder. Like paint being squeezed out of a tube, the clay takes on a different shape depending on how it is pressed.

BIOGRAPHY AWARDS INFORMATION

Oscillating between expression and constraint and advancing technological innovation while also utilising traditional craftsmanship, Alvarez’s sculptural forms challenge our perception of weight and gravity and appear both of this world and utterly separate from it. His practice focuses on the design of systems and the creation of tools and processes for producing sculptural objects and architecture. The technology created by the artist to aid in the works creation are inextricable from the artist’s work, and even from himself. They highlight the way in which an artist can become both craftsman and engineer, and the tension between these two roles. Alvarez continues to playfully push the boundaries, creating works rich in tradition and at the same time utterly unconventional to create a truly unique and surprising sculptural environment.


Anton Alvarez (b.1980) graduated from the Royal College of Art, London, UK in 2012. Recent solo exhibitions include The Flavour is So Strong, Larsen Warner, Stockholm, Sweden (2019); L’Ultima Cera, Church San Bernardino alle Monache, Milan, Italy (2019); Visual Vertigo, Espace Muraille, Geneva, Switzerland (2018); To Plan the Unexpected, Christian Larsen, Stockholm, Sweden (2017); Alphabet Aerobics, National Centre for Craft and Design, UK (2016); How Long is a Piece of Thread, Xue Xue Institute, Taiwan (2016); Wrapsody, Salon 94, NY (2015).

En conséquence, l'industrie du jeu est aujourd'hui la plus grande source de revenus pour le secteur du divertissement et une partie importante de l'industrie de la restauration et de l'hôtellerie du pays. Mais malgré sa popularité évidente et son importance économique, le jeu n'a pas toujours été dans des conditions favorables sur le territoire du voisin amical des États-Unis.

Comme la plupart des joueurs occidentaux, le casino en ligne au canada canadiens préfèrent la combinaison habituelle des jeux de hasard traditionnels, y compris le blackjack, les machines à sous et la roulette.

Beaucoup ont également commencé à s'impliquer dans le poker, venu des États-Unis au Canada. Plusieurs joueurs de poker professionnels ont vu le jour dans le pays ces dernières années, dont les gagnants des WSOP (tournoi annuel de poker) Daniel Negreanu et Jonathan Duhamel.
