Dimensions of visual arts in tinkery


Remarkable achievements of craftsmen in metal
6 February – 21 April 2007

Wire and tinkering techniques have astonishing creative potential and outstanding expressional opportunities. Thus, the tinkery tradition has remained a constant source of inspiration for the contemporary crafts, visual art and professional design. The contemporary artworks have borrowed from the construction of old tinkery products and the traditional binding of earthen-ware. Traditional folk crafts are inspiration for an original art opinion and unique creative work. Lines from metal fibre, weaves and nets define surface and volume and allow doing experiments with space and make the artworks ambiguous and multilayered items. Unlike wire line that helps to simplify the artistic expression. Of diverse scope of technological processes, a simple linear, spiral or loop weave and coupled machine lace nets are the most popular ones.
