Bai Ming is a multifaceted Chinese porcelain artist. His work mixes ancestral techniques, traditions, and practices with those of global contemporary art. He has in essence revitalised the art of Chinese porcelain at the two workshops he heads, freeing it from archaic forms through his pioneering technique in ceramics, painting, and lacquer. His in-depth understanding of this ancient form of craftsmanship produces not only objects as works of art but also a certain relationship to the sacred, a particular transcendence of time, tradition, and otherness. This book is published on the occasion of an exhibition of Bai Ming’s work at the Keramis Centre, Belgium, curated by Christine Shimizu.
