Touch the Conversation
The Saskatchewan Craft Council invites you to participate in an interactive exhibition by Manitoba artist Grace Han.
This captivating exhibition creates a thoughtful melding of Canadian life and Korean tradition. Challenging the concept of ceramics as fragile, large scale stools present as robust, strong, and resilient, much like their maker. Viewers are invited to touch, move, and create their own path through a network of ceramic objects.
As a Canadian newcomer and speaker of English as an additional language, Grace Han creates a visual language using physical interactions with her work as a means to communicate with her audience. Touch the Conversation explores the concept of betweenness, one Han explains as “a deep exploration of the nuances and complexities of myself being ‘between’: living as a Canadian Newcomer from Asia; having a slight physical frame but possessing an indomitable boldness which drives me to make large, challenging objects.”
