Fourteen international ceramicists joined Galerie Terra Delft and Jackson Li of the Sanbao International Ceramic Institute in Jingdezhen (CN), in the adventure of a work period in the Chinese town of Lintao, a stone's throw from the village of Majiayao, where Neolithic painted pottery was found in the 1920s.

The artists were asked to complete a number of works in their own studios, incorporating the experiences of the project in Majiayao. This collection of contemporary ceramics features references to the Neolithic pots, the original source.

The participating artists are:

Liesbeth Kamp – The Netherlands Saskia Pfaeltzer - The Netherlands Mechtild Paauwe – The Netherlands Marc Janssens – Belgium Mieke Everaet - Belgium Martin McWilliam – Germany John Higgins – Great Britain Paul-Robin Sjöström – Sweden Morten Løbner Espersen – Denmark Sangwoo Kim – France Jay Lu – New Zealand Vilma Villaverde – Argentina Hidemi Tokutake – Japan Jackson Li - China


This exhibition Echo van Majiayao is accompanied by a richly illustrated catalog containing the stories of the artists' stay as well as the origins of the Majiayao culture. This catalog costs € 15 and is available via the web shop.
