Practice-led PhD ceramics student Wen Hsi Harman is taking part in Passport to Taiwan Festival, taking place in Manchester on 30 September.

The festival is organised by Manchester Taiwanese Association, with the aim of celebrating the diverse and exciting culture of the beautiful island of Taiwan to wider audience.

The event will feature Taiwanese food and drinks, aboriginal music, opera, puppetry, dancing show, a Taiwanese market and a photography and ceramics exhibition

Wen Hsi will be exhibiting ten ceramic pieces in the festival’s exhibition. Her work investigates cross-cultural identity through clay, in the shape of handmade sculptural porcelain spoons, fingerprints, bananas, and traditional Chinese characters. She also uses ceramics to explore the tension of cross-cultural identity, between the East and the West.

The festival takes place on Saturday 30 September,  11:00 – 17:00 at St. Peter’s House, (Oxford Road, M13 9GH, Manchester). Tickets £2 / free for children under 5. Follow the news on social media via #PassportToTaiwan
