The exhibition will run at Riga Porcelain Museum from 27 November 2020 to 17 January 2021.
First organized by Riga Porcelain Museum in 2006, the tradition of the International Small Form Porcelain Exhibition continues, and, in response to the current events, this year's slogan and theme of the exhibition is Asymmetric Movements.
As a geometric concept, asymmetry embodies the idea of oppositionality. Every second, there are divergent and counter-forcing processes in the world. The contrast between the symmetrical and the asymmetrical is often the difference between things made by humans and those which occur in nature. Objects, technologies and ideas created by humans are frequently based on repetition and have symmetrical or systemic structures. But there are no straight lines in nature. Every object is unique in form, and even the human body is asymmetric. As a concept, asymmetry is in a sense the foundation of beauty.
75 artists offered their version and interpretation of the theme and entered the competition with their 15x15x15 cm porcelain works, realized with means of artistic expression and technical methods of their choice. For the exhibition, the jury has selected works of 33 authors from different countries: Brazil, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Chile, Denmark, England, Estonia, Germany, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Spain and Turkey.
