PAD DESIGN + ART | Dark Matter | Sarah Myerscough Gallery

10 - 16 OCTOBER 2022

'Totemic sculptures in oxidised and scorched Sequoia and Horse Chestnut' by Eleanor Lakelin will be exhibited at PAD as part of 'Dark Matter' curated by Sarah Myerscough Gallery.

"Dark Matter is a disruption of the stereotypes of eco-contemporary design and craft. The presentation will attest to the depth, breadth and power of the organic and hand-crafted, with no room for twee, folk whimsy, or kitsch...

Dark Matter resolves the ostensible dichotomies that haunt contemporary craft, design and the decorative arts, showing that the sustainably crafted is compatible with the elegant, compelling and contemporary. We will show innovative reworkings of the ancient techniques and values of wabi-sabi, yakisugi and mokume-gane, and exceptional reimaginings of the limits of wood-turning.

Dark Matter is a compelling argument for a shifting of perspective, it invites you to indulge in the sumptuous depths of charred wood and sumi ink, entices you with the rich shimmering of bronze, and remains fundamentally a collection of organic, sustainably focused fine furniture of extraordinary craftsmanship that will stand the test of time."
