Gyeonggi International Ceramics Biennale
The Gyeonggi International Ceramics Biennale, held every odd year since 2001, brings ceramicists from over 70 nations and their art works to festival sites across Gyeonggi-do Province.
This year, under the theme of “Narrative: Ode to Life,” the works on display will deliver the story of contemporary society, culture and the life of individuals and groups. Here, you will be able to explore interesting pottery representing our daily lives, history, culture and even politics.
Each of the festival sites will offer unique hands-on activities to make and bake ceramics. Also, “clay activities,” such as building a clay tower, throwing clay on a target and mud painting, will be available at all of the festival sites.
Finally, on weekends, visitors will be able to cook some instant noodles in a primitive earthenware jug or bake sweet potatoes in clay molds.
