SÄRKYVÄÄ / CERAMICS FACING THE NEW 03.05.2021 – 28.08.2022 Group Exhibition The idea underlying the Ceramics Facing the New exhibition is kintsugi, the Japanese tradition of mending broken pottery with gold or another metal.

How can fragments be re-joined to create a renewed yet enduring […]

Universumin kokoisista kysymyksistä liikutaan yksilön kokoisiin kokemuksiin. Dark Matters yhteisnäyttely koostuu pääosin keraamisista veistoksista ja äänestä. Kuljun keraamiikasta käsin rakentamat veistokset toimivat esittäjinä Metson säveltämälle ja esittämälle […]
