Playful twists on the familiar tools of domestic life.Visit site
Ambiguous Implements is a group exhibition of contemporary works that playfully reconsider the familiar objects of our day to day domestic life. Before touring the country, the exhibition opens at Sheffield's Bl_nk Space Gallery – part of creative co-op-cafe-shop-artspace Roco on Glossop Road.
The exhibition brings together 17 practitioners from the fields of design, jewellery, ceramics, metalwork and sculpture. 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.
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 – find out about each artist on the Ambiguous Implements site.
