Walking in China - in Japan

Norske Kunsthåndtverkere's theme exhibition 2020

Haaland about the work: 

In the city of Arita in Japan, porcelain has been made over 400 years. Everything here revolves around this material; hundreds of factories, galleries and artists. In the rivers you find porcelain shards and in the forests piles of discarded tableware. 

Walking in these piles of history gives me a recurring feeling that I am someone who creates even more things - to a world that is already full.

Inner Beauty

Norske Kunsthåndtverkere's theme exhibition: I craft - I travel light



Haaland about the exhibition:

For this project, I wanted to work with the jar as an object. The jar has always been used to store or transport things that need protection and have been a place to collect things of special value.


In recent years, I stays throughout the Barents region and have worked a lot with elements and metals that are extracted here in the north. The northern areas are referred to as the "Region of Opportunities". There are enormous natural resources here, but also enormous challenges, e.g. other within the mining industry and waste issues. The values are hidden deep in the rock masses and it takes a whole industry to extract them. "Inner Beauty" highlights, quite concretely, some of these products and substances that are being talked about.

9 white, unglazed, small porcelain jars.

Barents Juxtapose

Barents Spetakkel, Kirkenes

Haaland about the work:

Barents Juxtapose is an experimental collection of impressions - more a mood board than an artwork. These impressions are visualized in different ways by porcelain tiles - photography, pictorial expressions and surfaces with sediment samples. All the odd parts come together in a larger unit and together create small glimpses of the visible environment here in the Barents region.

The project is a separate dimension of Cecilie Haaland's artistic activities. The materials used require a geologist's understanding of sediments and mining in the areas on the border between Russia and Norway.

Porcelain, phottery and various glazing techniques

Om prosjektet:

Målet med prosjektet er å utforske forholdet mellom det kunstneriske, det håndverksmessige og det utformede i en rekke husholdningsobjekter som demonstrerer empatiske kvaliteter ved å gjøre livet lettere gjennom enkelhet. Funksjonalitet med et formål og en følelse av velkomst.
