Since its start in 1999, Cheongju Craft Biennale has expanded into an event that invites 3,000 artists from 60 countries and attracts about 400,000 audiences across the country.
As Cheongju Craft Biennale welcomes its 10th anniversary this year, UK/Korea 2017–18 will host a UK Pavilion as its official programme. The UK Pavilion presents the exhibition Form + Motion which includes artworks selected by Crafts Council UK, Craft Biennale Scotland, film Screening of Real to Reel, and lastly presentation of resulting work by Linda Brothwell, who had carried a research on tools used in Korea.
In partnership with Crafts Council and Craft Biennale Scotland, the main exhibition, Form + Motion, will be premiered at the UK Pavilion. The balance between English and Scottish craft works will be in harmony and allow audiences to see the wide range of the UK’s fine craft culture.
In addition to the exhibition, 2017’s awarding winning films from Real to Reel – the UK’s first craft film festival, will be screened so that audiences can delve into the craft from various perspectives.
