Human Conditions of Clay highlights different ways contemporary artists use clay to understand what it means to be human. The artists use clay to explore diverse themes including history, current affairs, human behaviour, folklore and tradition. The resulting artworks range from installation, animation, and works on paper, to sculpture, photography, and video performance.

Each of the artists manipulates and presents the raw material of clay in their unique style, with every artwork carrying a human trace and presence. Human Conditions of Clay shows us how contemporary artists use clay as a medium to understand ourselves.
