Mah Rana exhibiting with the Crafts Council
Acts of Making is festival that celebrates craft: Bilston, West Midlands, 14 - 28 Feb 2015 and Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, 7 - 21 March 2015.
Date: 14 February 2015
Mah Rana, course leader for MA Jewellery, will bring her collaborative archive project Meanings and Attachments to St Leonard’s Church in Bilston and Gateshead Central Library. People are asked to bring along a piece of jewellery that has special meaning to them. Rana and her team will record the stories behind the jewellery and take photographic portraits which will then be displayed in Bilston Craft Gallery and Shipley Art Gallery for the duration of the festival.
Acts of Making is a two-week festival that celebrates contemporary craft through performances, live installations and workshops taking place in Bilston, West Midlands, from 14 to 28 February 2015 and in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, from 7 to 21 March 2015.
Meanings and Attachments events at the Acts of Making Festival
As well as activity in Bilston Craft Gallery and Shipley Art Gallery - the festival will present craft in unexpected spaces and allow the public to interact and collaborate with internationally-exhibited artists.
Mah Rana’s research-based work (Meanings and Attachments) explores the ways we use jewellery to mark occasions and events, both significant and everyday. Trained as both a jeweller and psychologist, her work has developed into a unique blend of public participation, performance, arts and healthcare. She uses jewellery as a starting point to explore ideas about value, communication and personal and collective histories.
