Budding artistic creatives have put unusual projects to effect in the studios of the heritage-rich Meissen Porcelain Manufactory. They are not new to working with ceramic materials, having already furnished ample evidence of their talent in courses of specialised study and actual works. They all won Richard Bampi Prizes in 2022. During subsequent periods spent in the Meissen Manufactory’s studios, they got to know how the place ticks and exploited its great potential for their own creations. The exhibition covers works by Helena Sekot, Philsoo Heo and David Torres and provides insights into the creative processes involved.

Helena Sekot adapts typical Meissen shapes in images that beckon responses from their beholders. Philsoo Heo derives inspiration from wood. He morphs its fissured surface into bulkily elegant porcelain. Large-format sculptures by the Colombian David Torres reference the history of Meissen porcelain whilst also addressing stereotypes; “white gold” may stand for porcelain in Germany but in Colombia it’s a byword for cocaine.

Duration: approx. 1 hour
