Last week, Wednesday the 10 July, saw the opening of this year’s Jerwood Makers Open. Featuring work handcrafted by Maisie Broadhead, Linda Brothwell, Adam Buick, Nahoko Kojima, and Roanna Wells. Each artist was commisioned to create something new and ambitious for display.
Over the coming weeks I’ll be talking to them about what inspired the resulting works, their chosen working methods, and the ideas, concepts and contexts that underpin their respective practices. I’ll also be looking at Object Oriented Ontology (spookily abbreviated as OOO), trying to make sense of the concept (it’s the current art world theory of choice), and seeing how it might facilitate a novel reading of the “things” exhibited at Jerwood Space.
