New at Direktorenhaus: Eleanor Lakelin

Gefäße von Eleanor Lakelin

Starting in September, Direk­toren­haus will be showing the British artist Eleanor Lakelin for the first time. She is one of the world’s leading wood artists. Lakelin “sheds barks by carving and sand­blasting to reveal the organic chaos that prevails in the mate­rial itself and forms layers of different textures” and “uses the shape of the vessel and the surface struc­tures to explore these layers and cracks”.
