Drawing inspiration from Samuel Beckett's play "Waiting for Godot", where the protagonist endlessly waits for someone named Godot but never finds fulfillment, we can discover the artist's profound contemplation and diligent practice through the similarities between the themes of the play and the repetitive pottery process.
By considering materials, mixing clay, creating plates, intentionally making cracks, and then imprinting numbers, the works are meticulously constructed with their assigned numbers showcasing the results of 15 years of Bae's relentless practice and effort. This repetition, in the hundreds of thousands, represents not just a simple task but symbolizes the artist's life and his journey within.
Bae Sejin leaves us a message through his work that "How do we transform and exist within time?" The work allows us to figure out ourselves standing at the heart of change. Through this exhibition, we can see at a glance his 15-year journey of work. In collaboration with PBG and DELPHIC, a limited edition Tea Container was released along with De Mitéra leaf tea, a unique experience aligned with the artist's world of art.
