History is the documentary of life, the extension of time and the contact we have with our ancestors.
When it comes to history and creation, I always recall what Professor Jao Tsung-I often said when I was still at postgraduate school, “If we do not start with history, how could we inherit the past and create the future?” Teacher’s insightful words benefit me for life, and I shall never forget.
Since we learned to stand on our own feet, our distance with the earth has been widening along the flowing stream of time. Through ceramics, a different connection is found between the earth and us. Captivating us to immerse in the world of artistry and to embrace the law of cosmos, our mediator awakens us from the lost humility towards nature.

Through this space, audience can get in touch with the artists’ creation directly, and understand the thoughts of curators with the selected works and arrangement.
