The second installment of Ambiguous Implements takes place across the two venues of B&B Projects Space and Folkestone Museum, Folkestone, Kent. Bringing together 17 practitioners from the fields of design, jewellery, ceramics, metalwork and sculpture Ambiguous Implements presents a collection of contemporary works that playfully reconsider the familiar objects of our day to day domestic life. Re-thinking the tools we use for eating, grooming, cooking and cleaning, the exhibiting artists have employed and subverted traditional craft techniques, reframed existing tools in new sculptural assemblages, or given seemingly banal objects new functions and effects.

Participating artists include; Rob Anderson, Aimee Bollu, Caroline Broadhead, David Clarke, Nuala Clooney, Rachael Colley, Rosie Deegan, Kate Farley, Daniel Fogarty, Kate Haywood, Jasleen Kaur, Julie Mellor, Maria Militsi, Rebecca Ounstead, Matt Rowe, Jonathan Trayte and Abbie Williams.

Crafting the Contemporary

Saturday 28th October 1pm – 4.30pm Folkestone Museum, High Street, Folkestone.

In conjunction with the exhibition, an afternoon symposium will explore the blurring of boundaries between the fields of traditional craft and contemporary art. Artists Rachael Colley, Ellie Doney (manifold collective), Daniel Fogarty and Matt Rowe will discuss their individual practices and explore different approaches to traditional craft techniques. The afternoon will finish with a tour of works in Folkestone Triennial that touch upon the question of crafting the contemporary.

Please visit the project website for full details of the talk schedule or our events page book a place.
