The First Central China International Ceramics Biennale is a rich and expensive survey of contemporary art from leading artists and designers. Installations by International and Chinese artists engage with the two central themes of the Biennial. The book describes the Biennale that is grounded in contemporary artistic investigations of our Anthropocene age, the Earth, and relationships with our environment. ‘Contact’ refers to the materiality of clay, and ‘Contract’ suggests a sense of legal obligation –as guardians of our natural and cultural heritage. The works in clay, glass still and moving images, and mixed media, are recorded in the book. They dialogue with the central themes of the Biennale, exploring the transition from mud to form, sound, Innovative ways to combine glass and clay, ecologically engaged projects, global ceramics legacies and relationships between nature and technology.
