A collection of recollection and recreation

Progin and Mc Lin experiments with the material and method of production with a series of four porcelain projects. The first project Fragment(s) is a limited edition of porcelain vases that captures the history, break and decay of a mould to reveal the beauty in deterioration and create a memory of what would otherwise be discarded. No two vases look the same as the moulds decay and colour combinations change. In the second project Irony, Progin and Mc Lin produce a handful of Eggshell Porcelain, which are as thin as wings and as light as cloud. The design of the pieces are simple in shape, but capture a fleeting moment during which the iron decays to leave an everlasting trace onto the porcelain, and has turn nothing into something. Continuing on the research on Jingdezhen's history of process of production, Progin and Mc Lin will present project Erosion in Seoul.
