Description

Join us for the Private View evening of BUILD, part of the Maker Mile Design Route for London Design Festival 2017. Tickets are complimentary but limited in availability, each ticket includes entry, complimentary drinks and nibbles and a limited edition DAZZLE tote bag.

BUILD is an immersive installation by Artist Lisa Traxler housed in the Surface Matter materials studio in London Fields for The London Design Festival. Materials meet art, informed by architecture in a visual narrative heavy with the echo of history. BUILD is a series of sculptures, shapes and works incorporating unusual materials like vitreous enamelled steel, stitched paper, vinyl and recycled paper composite. Inspired by dazzle camouflage and radar, Traxler's work is a reaction to the restoration/conversion of a WWII Radar Bunker on the Isle of Wight. Meet the artist, see the bunker in film, learn about materials and play with the notions of encrypted communication.
