Artists are reviving traditional craft and repurposed materials as a means to explore identity and memory. Cultural heritage and skills from a broad and global audience come together in a rich and resourceful aesthetic that celebrates human diversity and the histories that make us unique.
Honest materials and sustainable manufacturing processes reflect a consciousness of our natural environment and the need to preserve what already exists. Discarded plastic waste and raw materials such as straw and wicker are handworked into modern constructions, while heritage textiles are interwoven in contemporary ways. Age-old character and original features from historical architecture are preserved and updated in a considerate manner.
