Beauty Lies Within

26 May – 28 July 2024

Thursday – Saturday, 11 am – 6 pm, Sunday, 11 am – 5 pm

Make, Somerset


Rooted firmly in the tradition of 달항아리—dalhangari, or moon jars—‘Beauty Lies Within’ presents works by ceramic artist, Jane Yang-D’Haene, exploring her earliest recollections of the Korean landscape, her birthplace. Creating new visions of place and self through abstraction and experimentation, Yang-D’Haene’s new body of work expands on her earliest influences and extends across the arc of her lived experience, cultural identity and creative practice. She seeks to transform the emotional experience of memory into the physical.
