9th - 14th May 2023
Maud & Mabel is pleased to present Weightless, an exhibition showcasing the works of eight established and emerging international artists from Japan, Sweden, Italy, the US and UK. Uniting these artists’ diverse array of disciplines is a pervading delicate appreciation and intimate understanding of their mediums, enabling them to mould solid materials such as clay, wood and metal into light, flowing forms - emanating a sense of weightlessness. Collectively, the pieces exude an ethereal, playful quality from their respective manipulations; defying the standard sensorial connotations of the raw materials from which they were born. These investigations display an acute sensitivity towards the essence of a given material; at once both distilled to its basic elements and changed - a transmutation allowing for new possibilities and encouraging fresh perceptions. Coinciding with London Craft Week, the exhibition will be held at Cromwell Place, South Kensington, allowing for significant expansion into a large-scale presentation of works not previously seen before at Maud & Mabel’s Hampstead gallery.
