GROUP EXHIBITION _ Gyeonggi Ceramic Biennale, KOCEF Korea
Yeoju Dojasesang (World Ceramic Livingware Gallery)
curated by Irene Biolchini. Organized by International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza, in collaboration with Korea Ceramic Foundation
The title of the exhibition refers to the technical conditions of time, but also to an additional dimension of time on Earth, which can be interpreted as the time we are called to live upon the earth, or our physical and mortal dimension. The selected artists’ work considers our time on Earth as something temporary and very much based upon the human exploitation of natural sources.
Following the main theme of the Ceramic Biennale, Ode to Life, the International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza presents four generations of artists, all involved in the numerous editions of the Faenza Prize, the oldest ceramics prize in Italy. The Prize becomes the filter through which one can interpret the evolution of Italian ceramics, but also an instrument that can be adopted to measure how those different generations of artists dealt with the very same concept.
