Shaping the Void | Video
Between all the groundwork and long nights, the periods of the year we spend in preparation for exhibition openings are our best. Ideas between team members and collaborators are flowing and adrenaline levels run high. From the moment the delivery truck drops off packages containing the exhibition collection at our studio’s doorstep to the final placement of an object on our gallery shelves, the energy spent getting an exhibition installed in the weeks before the opening are all in the name of craft obsession. The most exciting feeling can be summed up in the moment we open a package sent from Japan and pull out the exhibition works for the first time.
The experience is described in this short video that captures the journey of the Silver Teapot by Masanobu Ando, from the moment it was unwrapped in our Brooklyn studios to when it was placed in our gallery in Manhattan awaiting the arrival of it’s maker to place the final touch – a copper handle.
