Eleanor Lakelin: Spring Shows

Spring sees the start of an incredible International journey for my work to Taste at Artmonte-carlo, followed by Nature Lab at Design Miami/ Basel. There will also be some very special shows closer to home - including Crafted at Fortnum & Mason for London Craft Week...

TASTE AT ARTMONTE-CARLO

29 April - 1 May 2016
I am thrilled to be exhibiting at Artmonte-carlo represented for the first time by Taste Contemporary Craft, a Swiss gallery championing the work of craft artists who push boundaries on an International scale. 

Artmonte-carlo is a new Salon D' Art under the High Patronage of H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco. It will showcase a select collection of work from leading international galleries at the very forefront of contemporary art, modern art and contemporary design - against the immaculate backdrop of the Côte d’Azur. 


One of the pieces on show will be this new work titled 'Shifting Sands' made from a Wellingtonia (Giant Sequoia/Giant Redwood) planted in 1854.

One of the highlights of London Craft Week 2016 will be a showcase of work by Walpole Crafted at the iconic Fortnum & Mason store, curated by Peter Ting. As well as showcasing sculptural works, I will be explaining some of my making processes live in the store on Thursday 5 May, 4 - 7pm.

Part of Fortnum’s ‘Season of Surprises’, the showcase also includes backgammon boards from Alexandra Llewellyn, bespoke textile prints by Insley & Nash, jewellery by Silvia Weidenbach, watches by Struthers London, leather bags by Mark Tallowin, and silverware by Theresa Nguyen. Ettinger, Cire Trudon and Marwood will also present their work.

Nature Lab, Work by Eleanor Lakelin
NATURE LAB AT DESIGN MIAMI/ BASEL

14 - 19 June 2016
“In Nature Lab, wild and encroaching nature is transmuted by skilled hands and ingenious minds into elemental objects that emerge from the darkness to conjure wonder and intrigue.”

I am also delighted to have been selected by Crafts Council and The New Craftsmen as as one of six British makers to exhibit at Nature Lab, A Future Made showcase at Design Miami/ Basel. I'll be exhibiting alongside Emily GardinerJochen HolzJoseph Harrington, Marcin Rusak and Marlène Hussoid

Nature Lab will be a Design Curio. Telling the story of nature transformed - each maker has developed new techniques to create objects of wonder using substances like wood, sand, salt, clay, flowers and ice.
