Outside In: Landscapes re-imagined in contemporary art & design.
OFFSITE : 6 - 7 Motcomb Street Chelsea London SW1X
Opening hours: Monday - Friday 10am - 6pm Saturday - Sunday 10am - 5pm
Outside In presents exceptional works of crafted art and design by international artist - designer - makers who define their practice through their ethical and emotional decisions to use organic, sustainable materials. These ancient materials; wood, willow, and grasses, are reimagined for the contemporary world as the makers express their devotion, both political and personal, to the natural world.
Sarah Myerscough conjures a vision of future interiors grounded in material choice and sustainability, and elevated by beauty and innovation. The palpable affiliation the artists have with their materials urges us to engage more deeply with the organic world around us.
While we look to increasingly digital and urban futures, this exhibition speaks to our innate desire for connection to the wild world our ancestors rose from, and allows us, in whatever small way, to bring that little remembered, now seldom touched, Outside, In.

As part of London Craft Week and Outside In select gallery artists Eleanor Lakelin, Nic Webb, and Max Bainbridge offer unique insight into their relationship with the natural world.
Eleanor Lakelin : 5 October 11am
Eleanor's knowledge of the natural properties of wood result in forms that seem true to the spirit of the material and which encourage us to look at the complexities of nature with a new perspective.
Nic Webb : 6 October 11am
Nic carves, scorches, burns, soaks and stains different species of fallen wood to create pieces that explore the natural drama of the material.
Max Bainbridge : 7 October 11am
Max's exploration of the living tree is rooted in the physicality of the embodied vessel and carved object.
