Discover: Works Inspired By Found Objects

MA By Project student's work feature in online exhibition by Garland Magazine.

Date: 19 April 2018

Lieta Marziali, a final year MA By Project student at The Cass, has had her work featured in Garland magazine's latest online exhibition Discover: Works Inspired By Found Objects.

Garland is published by the World Crafts Council, Australia, and this exhibition complements Issue 10, which features writing about the Indian Ocean as the meeting point of many foreign cultures, whose objects still cover its shores. As the call for submissions said: "The creative value explored in this issue is discovery. This reflects history (sic) of migration and exploration across the region…. How does the uncovering of something foreign provide a creative stimulus?"

Lieta's work focuses strongly on the acts of foraging, reuse and transformation. As a European in the UK, or, as she puts it, a "migrated object" herself, the issue of discovery and creative use relates to her as a person as well as her artistic practice. Three of her pieces are showcased here, with shots of the locations in which they were found, all on the north Norfolk shores and their coastal countryside, where Lieta now lives and works.
