Unfold’s Printing Things in Taiwan

Taiwan Ceramics Biennale 2014
Posted by Gestalten—04/2014

From May 2 to October 12, the 2014 Taiwan Ceramics Biennale (TCB) is sure to establish at Yinnge Ceramics Museum in New Taipei City, Taiwan, as one of the institutions at the forefront of contemporary ceramics. 

The exhibition will be open to the public for five month. On show this year is a rich variety of beautiful and innovative projects of 58 selected international artists, designers, architects and makers, offering an expansive overview of key trends in contemporary international ceramics. As the curator of the 2014 TCB, Wendy Gers brings in 3-D printed ceramics as one of the four main themes of the exhibition.

Unfold, co-editor of our new book Printing Things: Visions and Essentials for 3D Printing, will be exhibiting their projects L'Artisan Electronique and Stratigraphic MAnufactury. Clearly referring to the artisanal process of working in clay, Unfold's ceramic 3D printer has a great resonance with the way traditional potters handled clay by building a form out of coils of clay. Its virtual pottery wheel on the other hand, is a digital tool to 'turn' forms in thin air. Other featured artists from the book such as Jonathan Keep and InFlexions’s Francois Brument will also be part of the exhibition, engaging ceramic practices and 3D techniques in new historical trajectories.
