Haptic/Tacit: In Search of the Vernacular

Haptic/Tacit: In Search of the Vernacular


Jane Cairns / David Gates; Grant Aston / Henry Pim; Kim Norton / Gail Mahon; Kimberley Chandler / Mark Cousins

Haptic/Tacit is a collective of six artists/makers, and two writers. The group exists to make, show and explore ambitious modern craft.

The vernacular, in architecture as in language, is rooted in the everyday and the prosaic. It is formed of use and habit; it is local and specific; it is concerned with the functional or the domestic rather than the public or monumental. In Search of the Vernacular uses the human scale of contemporary craft to provide a fresh perspective on aspects of vernacular architecture.

The work in the exhibition is gallery based contemporary craft including sculptural ceramics, installation and bespoke furniture. Exhibiting makers are paired, working either in collaboration or thematically linked. Writing and discourse are an integral part of the exhibition and it will be accompanied by a new publication and a considered programme of events designed to stimulate debate and engagement.
