Since its debut in 1999. Cheongju International Craft Biennale(CICB) has biennially extended the horizon of Craft from “Hands of Harmony”, “The Breath of Nature”, “Use”, “Temptation”, “Creative Evolution”, “Deeply and slowly” through “Outside the Box” as themes. through as themes. Even though CICB has brought about an innovation and change in craft world. Concerns have been expressed. One of them was the surplus of artistry.

There was a request we need to meditate on the lesson craft have two pillars: usefulness(necessity) and artistry(beauty). So we CICB will try to re-read the usefulness as an essence of craft based on the truth, ‘craft in a daily lift here and now’. That is why CICB suggests as its theme. This theme includes an aesthetic usefulness beyond the implemental usefulness.

Kindly expected deep and diverse craft-interpretations on the theme will be shown through this “The 7th CHEONGJU International Craft Competition”.
