As of 02/04/2022 GlazenHuis will present ‘Chinese Whispers‘ by Erin Dickson, ‘A world of sand‘ by Atelier NL and an exhibition of the Academy of Arts Architecture and Design of Prague.
Erin Dickson (UK) _ Chinese Whispers
Inspired by the childhood game of the same name, Chinese Whispers brings together international glass practitioners through the craft of glassblowing.
Moving between languages and communicating only through email and social media, Erin Dickson uses google translate to forward instructions for the making of an object, written by the preceding artist in the chain. The resulting series of morphing forms highlights the global migration of people, skills and ideas, and that despite advances in communication technologies, information can still be lost in translation.
A World of Sand / SandBank / Zandreis _ Atelier NL
After exploring dunes, beaches, rivers, mountains and quarries, Atelier NL created an extensive library of various ‘wild’ types of sand from all over Western Europe. Thanks to intensive research and experimentation, these were successfully melted into glass. The results are stunning, with colors ranging from deep blue to silver black and from grass green to ash gray.
ACADEMY OF ARTS ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN, Praag (CZ)
A selection of works by graduates of the glass studio of the Prague Academy of Arts Architecture and Design (UMPRUM), one of the most important European programs in the contemporary art and design field. A colorful group exhibition.
