The cultural dialogue encompasses Hering’s own series of her hand-constructed porcelain vases and vessels, specially created for the showcase; the works are up to two metres in height, which is an absolute novelty in ceramic manufacturing.
This series of art works, developed over the course of months and as spectacular as it is conscientious, could be realised only in the ceramic workshop of Wasinburee in Ratchaburi. Here, Hering found unique and still preserved manufacturing techniques for the implementation of her oversized objects.
Wasinburee captured the artistic manufacturing processes onsite in Thailand and also filmed in Hering’s German workshop, where the first sketches came into being and the final touches were put to the porcelain editions.
It is this film and photographic documentation that initially opens the eloquent dialogue between the two cultures to the viewers in all its sequences and invites them to examine their unique characteristics as well as the surprising similarities.
