This funky art design exhibition features unique sculptures of wood. The exhibition includes work from twenty-eight Australian exhibitors who either work directly with wood, or with skilled crafts-people. The pieces relate to each other on several levels to form an overall vision for the exhibition based on figure and form; pushing material limits; craftsmanship and our eternal connection to wood - through place, nature, use and memory.
The Adelaide show was packed out with more than 17,000 visitors.
The exhibition is currently showing at the Riddoch Regional Gallery in Mount Gambier. Next it will tour to Design Tasmania in Launceston where it will open on 12 July.
WOOD: art design architecture resulted from a collaboration between JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design and Botanic Gardens of Adelaide, where it was presented in February through early April 2013.Read a detailed write-up on the exhibition
