Over the course of three weeks, products will be made in Wysing’s gallery, where they will also be stored and dried, creating a working space and exhibition that will illustrate some of the key ideas behind the project, drawing on the Arts and Crafts movement, the Korean Intangible National Asset register and many other design revolutions.
On Saturday 7 July, there will be a Study Day with invited speakers and contributors, who will explore the themes of materiality, craft and making, and there will also be an opportunity to visit the kiln.
Further artists involved in the UK-Korea exchange programme will contribute to the thinking and inspiration behind the project, and the aesthetic presentation of their research over the past year. This includes UK artists Aaron Angell and Mark Essen who recently completed a residency in Korea, as well as Jina Lee and the Fairland Collective.
The gallery will remain open every day from 16 June to 15 July and will include works in production, alongside research that has informed the object designs.
