Abstract [en]

My current work is the clay installation, in which I use unfired clay, mud as the material, the floor as the stage or canvas, and my bare feet and hands as the tools. call it 'The work of now'; each work is made on the site spontaneously and therefore each work is different each time and is never really finished until it is in place. The most important aspect in this work is 'Non-Intention' from the process of work. 'Non-intention' means that during the work an artist does not put her or his intention in order to achieve a certain result and the artist try to exclude calculations or plans; the artist's intuition is used in her or his work. Therefore the work seems to be imperfect or lack details, however this way of work imparts the sense of freedom and genuineness into the artwork. As a Korean, this non-intentional way of work has been familiar to me because this approach to art is widely known in Korea. The disposition of 'Non-Intention' is explained as the character of its aesthetics, which does not seek technical perfection or inclusion of artificial intention. 'Bun-Chung', le century Korean ceramic ware carries this exquisite character of Korean aesthetics. The beauty of this ware is from the artisans' lives and those were reflected into non-intentional and unplanned way in the making process. There are several contemporary western and Asian artists who embrace 'non intention' to tap into their spirituality or nature of existence. Among contemporary ceramics, Peter Voulkos and 'Abstract Expressionist Ceramists' worked with their intuition as well and tried to reveal their subconscious. The most direct example of this non-intentional way of work is 'Son (Zen Buddhist) painting', which expresses the core idea Buddhism, the true understanding of our existence. As a performer and sculptor, Zhang Huan also has worked with the core idea of Buddhism in unconventional ways. In France Valerie Delarue, a ceramist and sculptor has worked to express the meaning of her existence in a contemporary context. A contemporary glass artist, Mafune Gonjo, works with our state of mind as well and talks about the paradoxical sides of our rational or intellectual minds.
