About the Exhibition:
The Human Spirit: Propositions on Resilience in these Irregular Times
- a virtual group exhibition of ceramic and glass art by Korean and Indian artists.
This exhibition looks at the artistic interpretations of the concept of resilience of
the human spirit especially post the Covid pandemic, through the medium of
ceramic and glass. Both are transformed through fire into new states of being.
We examine the metaphor of rejuvenation, transformation, fluidity and
permeability as attributes of both ceramics and glass through figurative, abstract
and natural forms.
