Artists talk: Alex Kershaw and Barbara Campbell-Allen
In conversation with the curator
The practice of ikebana encompasses a great depth of history and cultural and spiritual awareness, and its influence extends well beyond Japan. Through a series of collaborations, Alex Kershaw’s new project Fantasticology Tokyo: faults, flesh and flowers explores these important traditions in relationship to the body.
Join the Gallery’s assistant curator of contemporary art, Joel Mu, in a conversation with Alex Kershaw and ceramic artist Barbara Campbell-Allen about their collaboration and the ideas generated in the project.
