Over 25 international artists at the Art in Handicrafts exhibition. The exhibited art, all made with labor-intensive techniques, offers -both the artist and the viewer- a unique possibility to contemplate the essence of this art.
Knitting Lamp Similar to living organisms, this lamp contains all the essential 'mechanisms' that will enable it to develop. All it needs is energy to start creating its own lampshade. It knits slowly around the lamp, pausing only when the light is off. Its growth places it beyond the bare utilitarian necessity of artificial light. The lamp becomes an animate part of space, an existence in its own right.
