HB381 is pleased to announce their summer exhibition, a group show of three Nordic artists emphasizing the parallels between intensive hand crafts, traditional textile techniques, and ceramics. The show will run until August 19th at the gallery’s New York location in Tribeca. Recent works by Marianne Huotari (Finnish, b. 1986), Veera Kulju (Finnish, b. 1975), and Hanne G. (Danish, b. 1963) are included.
Sewing, mending, stitching: all refer to “handicrafts” that have bred deep textile traditions and patterns for creation. The three featured artists pull on that history, transposing textile and handicraft techniques to the medium of ceramics, as they darn sculptures and glaze tapestries. By foregrounding repetitive and detail oriented practices, they each pause hectic daily life to invite in a therapeutic pace that centers creating by hand.
