Opening Reception: ‘Material Landscape’

Join us to celebrate the opening of ‘Material Landscape’ at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset.

Material Landscape’ features new works by six artist-makers that simultaneously challenge and embrace the potential of their material, interrogating the limits and possibilities of clay, wood, metal and stone. Through a dedication to process, the works explore the fluid dialogue between material and maker, form and function.

The exhibition includes works by Samuel Collins, Jack Doherty, Daniel Freyne, Anthony Bryant, Nancy Fuller and Alexander deVol.

Among the objects on display, Jack Doherty expands on the historical and cultural significance of the ceramic vessel through his refined soda firing practice; Daniel Freyne’s muscular metal sculptures question volume and weight, whilst Nancy Fuller’s forms in clay reveal a deeply personal connection with place.

The works initiate a response to the physicality of form and a re-evaluation of our relationship to the three-dimensional world, often informed by locally sourced materials and a deep connection to the spiritual.

‘Material Landscape’ will run at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset until 29 Aug 2022. Find out more about the exhibition here.
