OPENING: SATURDAY JANUARY 23rd 7-9 pm
With You Without You is a collaborative project. It circles around ideas about adornment and sculpture, and the blurring of boundaries between the two.
Sculpture as jewellery. Jewellery as sculpture. Objects seen in a space and to be imagined on the body. A collage of fine art principles, the use of space, traditional craft techniques (sewing, embroidery and goldsmith) and the idea of adornment.
Helen is a maker of jewellery and lives in Copenhagen, Hrafnhildur (Rafla) makes sculptural installations and lives in Glasgow. They have embarked on a collaboration of sorts, apart and together, through an exchange of materials and a fusing of their half-made works and the project will culminate in a week of working together in the Glasgow Project Room.
Since meeting on a plane in 1998, they last collaborated on shows in Copenhagen and Glasgow in 2002.
