Weds 13th Oct: Going for Gold at House of Organza
Its the second outing for the "House of Organza" project with the regular crew of artists on board to tackle the new theme "ADORN". The brief has been to make small scale adornments to complement the minimal mood of the new collections arising this season.
Curators Kim Howells and Lyall Hakaraia have taken inspiration from the precious metal gold and the ubiquitous pin (from hat pins to dressmakers pins). The Pin is a humble tool used in different disciplines and they have delivered us a selection gilded in gold to interpret in our own creative visions. The exhibition will take place tomorrow to kick off the Frieze festival season at "Vogue Fabrics" which is becoming "The Dalston Hotel". Jez Tozer has shot a special film of the pieces which will be screened and Jonny Woo will be in residence regaling a story he has written for the event.............. and no doubt generally being fabulous and fun.........
Who's in the House of Organza? - LYALL HAKARAIA, KIM HOWELLS, JUDY BLAME, DR NOKI, PIERS ATKINSON, CRAIG LAWRENCE, FRED BUTLER, PINS LONDON
