Marianne Heller, Gallery Director and Council Member of the International Academy of Ceramics (representing Germany) has selected Ceramic Sculpture 'After Lafcadio' by Michael Moore for the 'Contemporary Ceramic Art of the World. Grand Anniversary Exhibition 2018' in Sept. 2018

Galerie Marianne Heller has specialized in exhibiting British Ceramics in Heidelberg Germany, since 1978.

'After Lafcadio' was made in 2017 by Michael Moore as part of a research collaboration between Ireland and Japan exploring the influence of The Sodeisha Group of Post WW2 artists on contemporary Irish and Japanese artists. This led to a year long exhibition titled 'The Shadow of Sodeisha' which opened at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks, Dublin with funding from the Japan Foundation and The Design and Crafts Council of Ireland. The Shadow of Sodeisha was a themed research proposed and developed by Michael Moore in partnership with the National Museum of Ireland.

'After Lafcadio' was created in response to research about Anglo Irish Poet Lafcadio Hearn who worked as a poet, writer and journalist in Ireland, UK and Japan. The piece also references the topography of the Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Garned, in Tramore, Co. Woterford, Ireland, who's topography inspired the construction of the form.

'After Lafcadio' will now be exhibited at the 'Contemporary Ceramic Art of the World. Grand Anniversary Exhibition 2018' in at Galerie Marianne Heller.

'Contemporary Ceramic Art of the World. Grand Anniversary Exhibition 2018' was previewed in the in the August Edition of 'New Ceramics, The European Ceramics Magazine', issue 5 2018, by Editor Bernd Pfankuche (p.2). ISSN1860-1049.
