Studio 3: Articulate Bodies

Show overview

The Studio began with a fast paced creative project with the Roca Gallery, resulting in an exhibition as part of the Design Exquis series of collaborations.

From this starting point and with several winners within a week the Studio has visited mannequin makers, developed designs for competition, exhibited at Goldsmiths Hall, won placements in the USA. All have developed designs based thematically on the body, exploring personal ideas for this starting point.

Articulate Bodies is an amalgam of Jewellery and Textiles practice. A series of workshops sought to increase experimental, collaborative working through cross-material workshops in Shibori, both in metal and textiles, construct and cut (for form and structure), woven metals and body modification, all designed to question body forms and accepted rules of beauty. 

Students have developed films and books, experimented with ice, drawn with light, used magnets as structure, created abstract or installation, artefact, garment or adornment.

The Studio culminates in a Catwalk show at Aston Martin's Park Lane showroom in June.

Look closely and think about what you see here, each piece is a new way of looking and understanding, unique in its own way, an amalgam of culture, spirit, tenacity, and informed expression.
