Opening Reception: ‘Elemental Making’

  • Fri 23 September 2022
  • 6 – 8 pm

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

Elemental Making’ features the work of ceramicist Akiko Hirai and artist-maker Craig Bamford (SASA Works). Highlighting their distinct approaches toward material transformation, the exhibition explores the relationship between making and an intuitive response. Both consider our perceptions of form and function and the animistic agency of objects. Their work embodies a felt essence that seems more than its material fabric, asking the viewer to, in turn, contribute their own unique interpretation.

‘Elemental Making’ is on view at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset until Saturday 5 November 2022.
