Craftsmanship Alone Is Not Enough
The video documentation of 'Just Dharma'

Visual Arts faculty member Mr Jason Lim is participating in the Craftsmanship Alone Is Not Enough exhibition, held from 17 January to 11 February 2017 at the Lethaby Gallery in the UK.

Craftsmanship Alone is Not Enough 
celebrates the rich history of ceramics at Central Saint Martins, showcasing work from both alumni and current staff and students. The exhibition reflects the embodied practice of working with ceramics, with an active studio built in the gallery space as the setting for demonstrations and live clay firings.

Jason studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, and today the college offers one of the two remaining ceramic specialist degree courses and the only course with an emphasis on design.

At the exhibition, Jason presents a video documentation of his ceramic work, 'Just Dharma', created in 2007. The work references the Buddhist teaching of birth, death and rebirth, and was commissioned by National Arts Council and created for the 52nd Venice Biennale when he was selected to represent Singapore in the Singapore Pavilion.
