Wet / Fired - The Eighth Biennale of Israeli CeramicsLast week I was able to attend this amazing exhibition. I could not believe that two years had passed since the last one. Yet again this collection of artists provided a show that exemplified the wide range of ceramic art today. From huge crates and structures to tiny porcelain forms, the work was exciting and inspiring. It seems that the variations in this field are as vast as those within the area of our textile art.
What was noticeable this year was the inclusion of many video installation art pieces. One image showed a woman lying on her back having liquid clay poured into her mouth. Weird and mesmerizing! The recordings all had a ceramic theme and added an interesting dimension to the show. I wonder if this might also become a feature of textile exhibitions of the future?
I have included just a few of the images that caught my eye.
