Made in China Exhibition

Objective Gallery is pleased to present “Made in China”, an exhibition showcasing three artists born or based within China: Matt Watterson, Hao Zhenhan and Ryan Mitchell.

The tongue-in-cheek show title is intended to conjure the semantically loaded manufacturing label “Made in China” and all its Western-world connotations. The work of these three contemporary craftspeople pays its respect to the region’s legacy in ceramics and shapes it anew. For Objective Gallery founder, Chris Shao, the show is not strictly business, its personal. The gallerist admits not so long ago “Made in China” sounded closer to an allegation than a statement. He hopes this exhibit will spark further intrigue for the incredible creative talents emerging and reinventing modern China.

Each artist was chosen for their unique take on the near sacred Chinese art form, Ryan Mitchell and Matt Watterson use the unique perspective offered to them, entering from outside, both holding a deep resonance for the history and care Chinese made objects offer. While Hao Zhenhan teases out single elements of a complex network within materials and craft, inventing something wholly new.
