Moon Jar: Contemporary Translations in Britain
Korean Cultural Centre, London : 18th June – 17th August 2013
Celebrating 130 years of Korean-Anglo relations, the Korean Cultural Centre, London, is pleased to present an exhibition that considers the continued relevance of the Full Moon Jar in Britain today. The exhibition explores a contemporary response through the work of four leading potters based in the UK: Adam Buick, Jack Doherty, Akiko Hirai and Gareth Mason and Korean artist Yeesookyung. The Korean Moon Jar or dal-hang-a-ri has an iconic almost mythological status; the artists have each been invited to position their work alongside the historic vessel form re-contextualising it through their individual ceramics practice.
