about

In this collection, Keeryong combines his glass with found English teapots and porcelain objects. Often discarded in charity shops and flea markets, these are given a new lease of life when juxtaposed with the former material.

Tea is historically and culturally very rich for both the East and West and English manufactured porcelain teapots, once of huge popularity, are used as markers for this shared cultural stereotype. Keeryong’s final art works are uncanny and mysterious, combining the familiar with the ambiguous.
