Historically clay has been used as a popular medium to make utilitarian objects. The ease with which clay can be accessed and manipulated makes it a powerful material for many contemporary artists to explore and experiment infinite variations leading to new techniques and unearthing completely new forms, folds, and styles. This exhibition showcases works of 11 contemporary Japanese ceramicists, namely, Chikako Inaba, Jun Matsumura, Kazuya Ishida, Ken Mihara, Mami Kato, Nami Takahashi, Sachiko Fujino, Sayaka Shingu, Takayuki Sakiyama, Tetsuya Tanaka and Yuri Takemura.
These ceramicists have negated traditional ceramic tenets of perfect forms and refined glazing. Instead, they have pursued intense experimental manipulation of material and processes resulting in new, amorphous, or imperfect forms. By interrogating and advancing traditional definitions of ceramics, these artists are shaping new ways for more exciting ceramic works in the years to come.
