Deadline: November 7th, 2014
Artists around the world are invited to take part in the international competition organized by the Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale 2015 for the spring of next year.
From their call: The International Competition of GICBiennale 2015 whole-heartedly welcomes works by artists that re-interpret traditional values of ceramics in truly unique ways, breaking away from the conventional dichotomy of ceramics as design and ceramics as art. Ceramic artists are pushing the boundaries of ceramics ever outward, and the boundary between ceramics as design and ceramics as art is increasingly becoming blurred. This competition will focus on the possibilities for ceramic art to expand its territory by discovering artworks of mixed materials and made by techniques of other genres and ceramics fused with other genres of art, not to mention the values inherent to ceramics.
The International Competition of GICBiennale 2015 will be an opportunity to display your imagination and creativity to the fullest. Come and join this competition that will open the future of ceramics, presenting diverse issues facing us today including political, societal, religious, cultural, and environmental issues along with aesthetic values.
Theme: There is no separate theme regarding entries to the International Competition.
Eligibility:There are no specific categories for entries.
The following works are welcome:
* Functional ceramics (design), ceramics as expression (art), and ceramic works that attempt to reinterpret tradition.
* Ceramic works mixed with materials and made partly by techniques of other genres, and ceramics fused with other genres of art.
There is no online application form offered in advance. If you are applying from another country please check the Korean time carefully.
