Adi’s Receptive Vessels Spotlight were on display at COLLECT last month. The installation of eleven hand made metal vessels that responded to human voice suggested a playful interpretation of museum displays. The viewers were encouraged to speak in order to trigger the vessels’ reaction through gentle movement. Interactions were documented in a short film by Will Hazell:
Adi is also currently exhibiting as part of MAKE at the Ruthin Craft Centre in Wales along side other Goldsmiths’ Fair exhibitors including Jane Adam, Beth Legg and Gill Galloway-Whitehead. The exhibition explores different approaches to craft through the work of fifty applied artists. The exhibition opened on 18 February and runs until 23rd April.
