Description

If ceramics, glass, and metals are inextricably linked to earth and fire, textiles are arguably linked with wind and water. In truth, craft practices are all deeply connected to the elements and to nature.
Eight distinguished writers and thinkers living in the Nordic region endeavor to flesh out concepts such as material interaction and material agency, Posthumanism, site-responsiveness, and symbiotic thinking in the field of crafts. How do artists explore the potential of materials and the four natural elements? What does a human-material interaction look like, and how might one approach a material, not from the position of a master but from that of a collaborator?

Through craft practice, we have a direct channel for interacting with our environment, as what we make changes the material world. Camilla Groth

Earth, Wind, Fire, Water is produced by the Nordic Network of Crafts Associations in collaboration with Galleri F 15.
