Bringing together 17 practitioners from the fields of design, jewellery, ceramics, metalwork and sculpture Ambiguous Implements presents a collection of contemporary works that playfully reconsider the familiar objects of our day to day domestic life.
Re-thinking the tools we use for eating, grooming, cooking and cleaning, the exhibiting artists have employed and subverted traditional craft techniques, reframed existing tools in new sculptural assemblages, or given seemingly banal objects new functions and effects. The collection of work presents a twist on the familiar, bringing new perspectives to bare on the objects that populate contemporary domestic life.
Participating artists include; Rob Anderson, Aimee Bollu, Caroline Broadhead, David Clarke, Nuala Clooney, Rachael Colley, Rosie Deegan, Kate Farley, Daniel Fogarty, Kate Haywood, Jasleen Kaur, Julie Mellor, Maria Militsi, Rebecca Ounstead, Matt Rowe, Jonathan Trayte and Abbie Williams.
Ambiguous Implements has been curated by Laura Mansfield in collaboration with Rachael Colley and Nuala Clooney.
Funded by Arts Council England and supported by Dust & Roco.
The exhibition will open at Bl_nk Space Gallery, Roco on Thursday 6th July 2017 6–9pm, and continues until Saturday 15th July. Open Tuesday to Saturday 11am–6pm.
