From November 27, 2021 to July 31, 2022, the national Ceramics Museum Princessehof in Leeuwarden presents the exhibition EKWC@Princessehof: Meekyoung Shin. The exhibition shows new work by Meekyoung Shin (South Korea, 1967), in which she explores the boundaries between nature and art. For her new Megalith Series she was inspired by the creation of stone from clay. Shin made the work at sundaymorning@ekwc in Oisterwijk.


The new work, consisting of separate objects, was created by molding, bending, sanding and firing clay. This creates a material that resembles old mineral rock. Of these, Shin formed rock formations. With clay, the artist has created a universal construction that tests the limits of the material to the extreme, being both old and new, and both Eastern and Western.
