About the exhibition:
This exhibit brings together museums, ceramic art and photographic art. The works from both media will be exhibited introducing a challenging connection of two art languages, thought processes, means of observation and links that are not obvious. The meeting point between the ceramic material and the photographic image is based on inspiration.
30 ceramic artists selected an archaeological ceramic artifact from a museum which was the inspiration for creating a work giving the item a contemporary interpretation.
As part of the process, 30 photographers were paired with the ceramic artists and they created a photographic image that relates to the object.
The viewer can observe the processes and draw his own conclusions – not necessarily those made by the curators.
The meeting between the artists facilitated interdisciplinary exposure and a personal meeting. It did not include co-production or documentation of cooperation.
