An installation by ceramic artist Mie Kongo will be on display in Heuser Art Gallery October 1 - November 9, 2012. A reception for the exhibition will take place Thursday, October 18th, 5:00-6:30pm. The Chicago based artist developed this body of work while in residence at the European Ceramic Work Center in the Netherlands.
"My recent group of work from ECWC responds to the experience of being in and seeing a new environment. I collected objects that drew my attention; these objects had a previous purpose or were part of a prior process and sometimes discarded. I saw them in a new way, from a different point of view and transformed them into something different."
