The Heritage Conservation Centre (HCC) is an institution of the National Heritage Board (NHB), Singapore. Located in a purpose-built facility in Jurong, the HCC oversees the preservation, protection, and management of Singapore’s National Collection (NC) of 200,00 artefacts and artworks.
In this online talk, Fan Jiaxin and Zhang Jingyi will share how 65,000 ceramics in the NC are managed and cared for at the HCC. Join them to gain insight on the journey that newly acquired ceramics go through when they enter the National Collection – from accessioning, to storage, to being conserved and prepared for display.
Fan Jiaxin is a Collections Management Manager at the HCC. She has been in the role for six years and is in-charge of the Ceramics Store in the HCC, including the Tang Shipwreck Collection.
Zhang Jingyi is an Assistant Objects Conservator at the HCC. She is trained in the interventive and preventive conservation of objects from a range of materials and has been involved in numerous projects and museum exhibitions involving ceramics from the NC.
For those who would like a list of the recommended intervention conservation materials used by the HCC, see below:
