Tooled Up Exhibition

Tooled Up
12th - 20th September 2014

Private View Thursday 11th September

As part of Shoreditch Design Triangle and LDF, Art&Graft are pleased to present Tooled Up, a group show celebrating craft, graft and creativity. Art&Graft have invited some of the most exciting artists, illustrators and designers working today, to take a recognisable object of craft and apply their skill and ingenuity to transform it into a unique form. Whether it is using the nature of the item to inspire a print, reutilising a screwdriver to retrieve the last bit of paint from a tube or adding new forms onto the existing structure; the resulting prints, films and sculptures transcend the original tool to become exquisite objects in their own right.

 As contributor Joel Hopkinson notes, “ Tools can all be seen as charged instruments of potential, representing an optimism and state of flux. This is particularly true for finer made hand tools that exist as objects of craft; often these tools are emblematic of their own function by being expertly made, and aesthetically considered, indeed they become collectors items of material value - rare specimens. From a more personal viewpoint, as a maker; these fine hand tools whilst fitting the hand pleasingly, hold the promise of things to come, a material realisation of the imagination; as if all the dumb inert matter in the world can be transformed with the elegant sweep of the expert.”
