Mulan Gallery is proud to present the third edition of Ceramic Expressions, an annual group exhibition series showcasing new developments in modern ceramic art. The exhibition will run from 02 to 23 November 2019.
Founded in 2017 to showcase the creativity and versatility of Singapore-based ceramicists, Ceramic Expressions is an annual group exhibition that seeks to foster new explorations in ceramic art. Organised by Mulan Gallery, this year's iteration will also showcase the works of invited international ceramicists for the first time.
The works featured this year have been selected by a panel comprising Mr. Paul Lincoln, (Head of Visual & Performing Arts, National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University), Ms. Ong Sor Fern (Senior Culture Correspondent, The Straits Times) and Ms. Patricia Liang (Managing Director, Mulan Gallery).
The artists featured this year include Aida Khalid, Eddie Yee, Fyon Cheong, Hazel Ng, Hetty Lie-Schricke, Hiroko Mita, Kat Kng, Mami Kato, Steven Low and Zestro Leow. In a first for the exhibition series, new works by special guest artists Ken Mihara and Takayuki Sakiyama – leading figures in Japanese contemporary ceramics with works in major public collections globally – are also featured.
Aida Khalid adds tropical accents while negotiating between strength, functionality and beauty in her work, while Eddie Yee makes a ceramic case for listening without judgment. Fyon Cheong explores what it means when people "show their true colours," and Hazel Ng continues to celebrate the beauty of nature. Hetty Lie-Schricke examines her Nyonya identity as she reimagines the kebaya, while Hiroko Mita muses on the wonder and harmony present in nature and the cosmos. Kat Kng reveals hidden depths using sgraffito scratch marks and lines, as Mami Kato explores the relationship between inner and outer selves. Steven Low seeks to channel the energy of the cosmos and draw attention to its beauty, while Zestro Leow imagines an alien invasion that chips away at long-cherished belief systems and their perceived value.
