Abstract

Sarah Myerscough Gallery, in partnership with the London Design Festival, is delighted to present 'On Display', a group show featuring work by contemporary British designers, David Gates and Peter Marigold, metal smith artist Grant McCaig, Austrian ceramicist Thomas Bohle and Japanese jewellery designer Mariko Sumioka. Gates' 'Goffman Series' and 'Interlocutors Series' will be showcased alongside Marigold's newly released 'Bleed Series', which has already garnered the attention of the international design press. In the exhibition, objects will be framed exquisitely by these unusual wooden display cabinets, with the effect of encouraging original conversations between craft and design and the relationship between form and function. Specifically, Grant McCaig's metal and silver pieces will be displayed within Gates’ 'Goffman Series' echoing their delicate yet sculptural forms. Sumioka's jewellery pieces, inspired by refined and ancient Japanese architecture will be housed within the drawers of Gates 'Interlocutors', which have an explicit visual relationship to industrial and agricultural structures. Finally, Bohle's richly glazed ceramic pieces will sit within Marigold's cabinets, contrasting with their raw 'bleeding' wood exteriors, highlighting the differing outcomes of chemical reactions on natural materials.
