What is this exhibition about ?
An exhibition featuring work by pairs of artists who cooperatively create a set of tableware (functional or nonfunctional.) To be exhibited at Fancy Gallery, Seattle during the SNAG conference 2011.
Why tableware? Eating requires the systematic use of a variety of serving tools- from flatware to dinnerware to serveware. Many functional serving elements combine each time we sit down to enjoy a meal. A cup and a saucer, a knife and a fork, a soup bowl and a spoon, diverse items work hand in hand at the breakfast or dinner table.
Can two artists create cooperatively too? Can two artists who typically work in different media (metal, paper, plastic, Cad Cam, enamel, ceramics, glass, wood, polymers etc.) create a set of objects that when combined allow for a meaningful function at the table?
This exhibition would like to show how two individual makers develop a tableware set together. These objects can work together, respond to one another, converse between each other, or work dependently with one another.
We are looking for work that has been developed by artists from a variety of craft backgrounds. The goal of the exhibition is to show where the influence of each individual artist ends, and FLOWS into the creative sphere of the team, thus picking up on the SNAG conference theme FLUX (Flux as a Process.) The end result will be an exhibition of items (or sets) on which both artists worked cooperatively, and that complement each other in their function (e.g.: ladle and gravy bowl, fork and knife, pots and pans, cup and saucer, etc.) or one piece on which both artists worked cooperatively (bowl, pepper mill, plate etc.)
