MADE IN CHINA reveals a¬†dynamic relationship ‚ÄĒ with appropriation¬†and collaboration¬†occurring in both directions.

Marked by ever-increasing cross-cultural collaboration, this contemporary ceramics movement emerging from China is urging a re-definition of today’s export ware. With increasing frequency, western artists are traveling to China to produce ceramic work using traditional Chinese methods. Exhibitions in the United States, Australia, and Europe are bringing forward a new generation of export ware. In the summer of 2014, Leslie Ferrin travelled to Hong Kong, Chongqing, Jindezhen, and Shanghai to explore this growing cultural exchange. She participated in and lectured at workshops, visited galleries and museums, and toured studios where western artists work in collaboration with skilled Chinese artisans.

In this exhibition, Ferrin brings together work that reveals the essential aspects of contemporary ceramics currently coming out of China.

‚ÄúAfter my visit to China, it was clear that this growing movement of western artists¬†engaging¬†with¬†Chinese artisans¬†to provide works for international markets was urging¬†a contemporary¬†re-definition¬†of export ware. It is a dynamic¬†relationship with appropriation¬†and collaboration occurring in both¬†directions, and we are fortunate that we will¬†be able to¬†truly explore the relationship,¬†multiple¬†exhibitions over the coming year.‚ÄĚ‚Äď Leslie Ferrin

Sponsored as a guest lecturer by the¬†Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, Ferrin traveled to China in June and July 2014 with the aim of gaining a greater understanding of the cross-cultural collaboration, production, and appropriation occurring in the New Export Ware movement. During her visit, Ferrin visited ceramic workshops in Jingdezhen and Chongqing, where ‚Äď similar to the historical model of export ware ‚Äď skilled Chinese artisans, produce contemporary works for Western markets under the direction of visiting Western artists.

‚ÄúAfter my visit to China, it was clear that this growing movement of Western artists engaging with Chinese artisans to provide works for international markets was urging a contemporary re-definition of export-ware,‚ÄĚ says Ferrin. ‚ÄúIt is a dynamic relationship with appropriation and collaboration occurring in both directions, and we are fortunate that we will be able to truly explore the relationship, with multiple exhibitions over the coming year.‚ÄĚ

AMERICAN SCENERY

AMERICAN SCENERY

Paul Scott in the USA & American Scenery

January 21‚Äď2, 2014
New York Ceramics Fair 2014
Bohemian National Hall, New York

ongoing
selections on exhibit at Project Art, Cummington, MA

Paul Scott is a material based conceptual artist who creates individual ceramic pieces that blur the boundaries between fine art, craft, and design. With a penchant for rescuing cast-offs, he fondly restores them to a new life by using them as a canvas for biting social commentary. His work can be found in public and private collections around the globe.  Scott is a leading authority on printed vitreous surfaces. His research and artwork have been instrumental in showing and encouraging the creative use of this traditional printing technique in contemporary decorative ceramics.

During his recent residencies, lecture tour, and travels in the US, Scott gathered and created a new series, American Scenery, inspired by his travels, observation, and research into American landscape painting, prints, and the subsequent use of those images on ceramic transfer ware. Knowledge drawn from behind-the-scenes tours at museums and collections throughout the North East influences this new work where Scott has applied prints he produced in the USA onto rescued, cast off ceramic plates from the 19th and early 20th centuries. His work tells stories that explore the unexpected movement of images through materials, media, cultures, politics, histories, and geographies,  inviting us to see a whole group of objects in a new way.

Paul Scott is represented by Ferrin Contemporary. Read more and see more…
