The natural characteristics of materials that come from the earth can reveal varied and fascinating identities. Taken by makers and manipulated, nuances develop and a material can be revealed in a new way. Looking at ceramic, paper, metal, textiles and wood, Elemental shows the work of makers particularly interested in exploiting the inherent qualities of their chosen materials. Sometimes this means materials revealed in their most natural form – while others manipulate the characteristics we know to make new revelations of form and surface.
|Additional Information (Publicly available):||
Both Anni Albers and her artist husband Josef were pioneers of Modernism and firmly believed in freedom of expression, innovation and truth to design and aesthetics. This is the first exhibition in the UK to show textiles and jewellery by Anni Albers as well as works on paper. Focusing on the inventive and innovative aspects of her work, the exhibition will identify the threads that connect her different ways of working.
