Unceramic

Group Exhibition

Exhibition Period: 5 June - 29 July, 2020

The word “Ceramic” can be traced back to the Greek term κέραμος (keramos), which means “a potter” or “pottery”. It is related to an older Sanskrit root, which means “to burn”. Thus, the early Greeks used the term to describe “burned stuff” or “fired earth”.

 

What does “Ceramic” mean now?
9 alumni (Major in Ceramics) from different backgrounds and cohorts attempt to reexamine this question in a contradictory way and use “unfired” clay to express their own ideas in this “Unceramic” exhibition.

 

What role does unfired clay play in the so-called “contemporary ceramic art”?
