About

‘We are thrilled to bring Make Hauser & Wirth to Zurich for the first time since its inception in Somerset in 2018. Over the past four years, we have held 22 exhibitions in locations across the UK, Europe and US which have celebrated some of the best independent designer-makers working today. We’re thrilled to introduce such an outstanding selection of artist-makers for Make’s first presentation in Switzerland, the birthplace of Hauser & Wirth and home to a great tradition of makers and craftsmen’—Jacqueline Moore, Senior Director, Make Hauser & Wirth

We are delighted to announce the first exhibition in Zurich of Make Hauser & Wirth. Originating in Somerset, England, Make launched in 2018 to showcase exceptional contemporary craft by leading artist-makers from around the world.

On view at the gallery’s space on Rämistrasse, ‘Within.Without’ presents multidisciplinary works by eight established artist-makers, spanning disciplines from wood, ceramic and gemstone to metal, glass and concrete. Curated by Jacqueline Moore, Director of Make Hauser & Wirth, the exhibition honours both traditional techniques and new and evolving notions of material investigation, highlighting the creative excellence and vision of the makers’ individual practices and in turn, suggesting the true breadth of contemporary craft. Informed by a dedication to knowledge, process and experimentation, the objects on view reveal an intuitive response to interior and exterior form and material properties.

The exhibition will include works by David Gates, Helen Carnac, Derek Wilson and Alexander deVol. ‘Within. Without’ also features LOEWE Foundation Craft Prize finalists, Akiko Hirai (2019), Harry Morgan (2019), Peter Bauhuis (2021) and Julia Obermaier (2022). Among the compositions and multiple assemblages on display will be Hirai’s texturally rich ceramic moon jars imbued with an animate energy; the hand carved forms of deVol that reveal the inherent properties of wood; altered vessels by Wilson exploring the fluid potential of geometry, and the jewellery of Obermaier which connects a sense of interiority with the outer world.
