Moments of Wander showcases the latest collection of hand tufted linen rugs by London based Estonian textile artist Kätlin Lõbu, and a selection of Bizen pottery by Genso, a new Japanese platform for young Bizen artisans, represented by otherprojections here in the UK. For an enriched momenterial experience, Tea Encounters has been invited for a special journey into the taste and experience of tea drinking.
‘Moments of Wander’ can be interpreted as an visual exploration of the expressive pieces of art and craft presented in the exhibition – following the lines and abstract shapes of the patterns, the textures, materials and the overall aesthetic language shaped partly by nature, partly by the human hand.
Equally it may be interpreted as moments of awe (wonder), when experiencing the objects, materials, shapes and acts (the act of tea drinking, as well as imagining the act of tufting and/or pottery making), presented.
Both kinds of moments are essential for the human mind (often referred to as ‘mindfulness’) – in enriching and developing a sense of self and others, as well as the understanding and appreciation of our connectedness with Mother Nature and her resources (materials).
Join us on Wednesday 11th or Saturday 14th for Tea Tasting Encounters. As the capacity is limited, please book a space beforehand.
The exhibition is curated by artist Kätlin Lõbu from NID and Malén Hult of otherprojections and is hosted at otherprojections | NID showroom in the South Arcade, Islington Square.
