Event description

Description

This Autumn, The National Centre for Craft &
Design is proud to present Rooted in Instinct —
a new collection of work developed especially
for NCCD by Woman’s Hour Craft Prize nominee
and British Sculptor, Laura Ellen Bacon.
Rooted in Instinct is a unique exhibition
demonstrating an evolution of the intuitive making
process that has dominated Bacon’s practice to
date. It is a pivotal moment in the artist’s career,
featuring unexpected and familiar forms in willow
and new explorations in thatch, further developing
the possibilities of traditional hand weaving and
knotting techniques. In response to NCCD’s history
as an old seed warehouse, new abstract sculptures
create height, density and detail. The forms are all
at once majestic, immersive and ‘protective’ with a
unique sense of connectivity to the heritage crafts
and architecture of the Lincolnshire landscape.
