Castlefield Gallery is delighted that recent gallery exhibitor, artist Joe Hartley will be part of the Ambiguous Implements exhibition curated by Laura Mansfield at Touchstones Rochdale.
For the exhibition Hartley is exhibiting his Printed Animal Cushion Kit, commissioned by Castlefield Gallery for Making, A Life: The Peter Hodgson Retrospective with Peter and Friends (8 December 2017 — 4 February 2018).
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.
