ICHEON, Gyeonggi - If you think pottery is all there is to ceramics, don"t tell the hundreds of participants of the upcoming Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale. The potters - or artists to be more accurate - are attempting to show that ceramics can be considered closer to 3-D models that fuse other art genres such as installations, paintings, sculptures and even tattooing. They say the event is breaking down the walls between artistic genres. Starting from Friday, the Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale, which is on its eighth edition, will be held in three venues around Gyeonggi for about a month until May 31. The event"s international committee says it is crucial to find a direction for the future of ceramics at this biennale as it is the world"s largest that specializes in the art form and draws international attention as a result. Under the theme "Color: Ceramic Spectrum" the biennale attempts to highlight the "color of ceramic art", according to the organizers, through three venues, including Icheon Cerapia, Yeoju Dojasesang and Gwangju Gonjiam Ceramic Park. "Each venue symbolizes the past, present and future", wrote Park Kyoung-soon, the director of the biennale in a press statement. In Icheon, visitors can witness three different categories of ceramics, according to Park. "For the "Traditional Color", visitors can look at the traditional values embedded in Korean and East Asian ceramics, while "Distinctive Color" is a pursuit of the broadening of ceramic art as a genre in addition to its interpretation and "Variegated Color" refers to the diverse uses and stories of ceramics that enrich our everyday lives", said the director.A large lake surrounded by cherry blossom trees welcomes visitors to Icheon Cerapia. The small ceramic bell chimes placed on the trees clang whenever the wind blows and the colorful installations even before you reach the entrance of the building blatantly suggests that the theme of the event centers around "color".Two special exhibitions are being held in Icheon titled "Convergence and Transcendence".In the former section, pieces by ceramic artists from around the world are being exhibited. But these are not bowls or dishes: the artists have adapted other techniques or materials that depart from the traditional in order to create unusual works.
