Re.Use, Re.Think, Re.Imagine

19 Oct - 1 Jan 2020

Opens on Friday 18 October 2019, 6 – 8 pm

Make, Somerset


The exhibition presents the work of seven UK-based experimental artists and makers, whose practice explores unique responses to materials and process. The group exhibition will feature new and existing works, spanning glass, ceramics, found objects, textiles and furniture. Whether repurposing, recycling or innovating, each of the makers are challenging traditional conceptions of craft and functional design. Visitors will journey through a reimagined material landscape, from Juli Bolaños-Durman’s multifaceted glass sculptures to Charlotte Kidger’s 3D polyurethane foam hybrids and Lola Lely’s ‘Potluck’ solid timber stool series. At the core of the makers’ shared vision is an interrogation and consciousness of materials, whilst continuing to employ conventional techniques and methods. The exhibition provides an opportunity to consider our future craft heritage, whilst reflecting on the makers’ awareness of material use and our changing urban and rural environments.
