MASTERPIECE 2022 | Sarah Myerscough Gallery

30 JUNE – 6 JULY 2022

Bringing together 150 of the world’s top galleries and specialists, Masterpiece has established itself as one of the world’s leading international art fairs. Eleanor's work will be exhibited as part of 'Seeing the Forest for the Trees' curated by Sarah Myerscough Gallery and also the 'Masterpiece Sculpture Series 2022' curated by Melanie Vandenbrouck, Curator of Sculpture at the V&A. See Eleanor in Conversation with Masterpiece about the works on show.

"Seeing the Forest for the Trees is an evolving discussion, a dramatic visual argument for entwining the philosophy of environmental sustainability with high-end design and a tactile connection to the natural world... Our presentation interrogates assumptions about the value of materials; our artist-designer-makers transform the most humble-seeming of material into works of enduring luxury, problematising what we use, waste and venerate.

...Eleanor Lakelin only works with diseased or naturally-felled trees but she amplifies the ‘imperfections’ of wood to become significant and definitionally beautiful aspects of her objects. She encourages us to look at the complexities of nature with a new perspective. Her material is transformed into objects that invite touch and reflection, reminding us of our emotional bond with wood and, in turn, our wider relationship to the elemental earth."
