The Magic of Material: Exhibition Tour with Naomi Potter
Friday 17 August, 6-7pm, free.

Join Naomi Potter for a tour of the fantastic and magical worlds of Vanessa Brown and Anna Torma. Rich in symbolic imagery, both artists reclaim and activate craft traditions by challenging the historical stereotypes of certain materials or skills; embroidery, patchwork, and appliqué relegated to the domestic realm, and steel associated with industry, weaponry, and brutality. These seemingly opposite material selections act as a point of connection, proposing a conversation that binds as much as it does question the hierarchy of material and making.
