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.
We invite artists to create works from porcelain based on the theme of “Asymmetric Movements” in accordance with their own vision and understanding of the concept, manifesting this through aesthetic means of expression and technical solutions of their own choosing.
The exhibition will run at Riga Porcelain Museum from 27 November 2020 to 17 January 2021.
The works must have been created within the last two years and comprise at least 70% porcelain, with dimensions of 15x15x15 cm for individual objects or groups of several objects. Artists shall declare they are participating by sending a completed application form and a photograph of their work to firstname.lastname@example.org by 13 October 2020.
