ECHOES OF EARTH AND ETHER

Recommend

Miao's artistic narrative delicately explores the commonplace, where everyday items transcend to cosmic artifacts. His meticulously crafted ceramics, resembling artisanal masterpieces, unfold tales spanning historical, contemporary, and speculative futures. This chronicle embodies resilience against the potential erasure of diverse histories, urging active participation in shaping our collective narrative.


At the core of Miao's work is an invitation to reconsider our world with thoughtful creativity. His creations, dynamic provocations born from the fusion of traditional craftsmanship and visionary foresight, prompt engagement with the latent potential of human creativity. The overlooked everyday object, often underestimated, assumes profound significance in artistic expression. It becomes a canvas for subtle and nuanced forms of communication, possessing an inherent language that artists tap into to convey emotions with a delicate touch. This subtlety in artistic expression allows for a nuanced exploration of human experience, providing viewers with a contemplative space to decipher the understated messages encoded within the ordinary. By juxtaposing the familiar with the unexpected, Miao weave a tapestry of multiple dimensions, inviting viewers into a dialogue between the tangible and the imagined. This interplay challenges preconceived notions, encouraging a reinterpretation of the ordinary and fostering a richer, more layered understanding of the world.

SPACE DEBRIS

"Aiming to take the viewer on enthralling journeys into fictive worlds that eerily echo our own. Weaving references to science fiction, pop culture and countercultures, they touch on alternative ways of living and thinking: lost belief systems, interrupted histories, and cultures that resist inclusion in an increasingly homogenised and globalised world." - Miao Jialong
