After an prolonged time in isolation, creatives start to rediscover the power and inspiration that comes from collaboration. To emphasise this phenomenon, Sam Pratt and Valerio Capo, the house owners of Gallery FUMI in London, invited worldwide artists and designers to type “collaborative duos”.
Matching Emma Witter with Shinta Nakajima, Rowan Mersh with Sam Orlando Miller, Casey McCafferty with Saelia Aparicio, Kustaa Saksi with Nikari, Tina Roeder with Francesco Perini, Lukas Wegwerth with Voukenas Petrides, Glithero with JAMESPLUMB, Jie Wu with Tuomas Markunpoika, Max Lamb with Study O Portable, and Johannes Nagel with atelier lachaert dhanis, the teams had been requested to provide artefacts for the gallery house. And that’s how the “The Energy of Collaboration” exhibition took place.
The artists and designers that collaborated for the exhibition needed to overcome many obstacles within the course of. Working from separate continents, speaking through on-line functions, sending sketches backwards and forwards. There have been collisions of types and strategies, mediums and methods. Resulting in, typically controversial, however extra typically distinctive and playful outcomes.
For instance, the Multi-functional Sculptural Work by Saelia Aparicio and Casey McCafferty, consisting of a aspect desk and a lamp. The Proposal For An Ecosystem (2021), was carved from Ashwood by McCafferty and embellished with Aparicio’s Stain Dye and Chinese language Ink drawings.
All works represented a myriad of distinctive materials interpretations and methods. Reminding us of the limitless potential that exists within the (artistic) collaboration.
