nacho carbonell unveils light mesh table cocoons at carpenters workshop gallery london

 

carpenters workshop gallery (CWG) presents a solo exhibition of spanish creative nacho carbonell, marking his representation by the cultural institute that has outlets in paris, london and new york. ‘light mesh’ looks at carbonell’s newly created collection of lamp sculptures from his ‘cocoon’ series, created in collaboration with CWG.

the family of objects is comprised of organically shaped semi-transparent cocoons that vary in form and that are fitted by a loosely structured sand-coloured mesh; each illuminated from within so that the light diffuses through the webbing producing a natural warm glow. individually, these hybrid works, tables and lamps at once, seem to suggest expressive creatures — fantastic and fascinating.

I like to see objects as living organisms, imagining them coming alive and being able to surprise you with their behaviour. I want to create objects with my hands, then i can give them my personality. I turn them into communicative objects that can arouse one’s sensations and imagination. in short, what i want to create are objects with a fictional or fantasy element, that allow you to escape from everyday life.’ nacho carbonell.

 

nacho carbonell: light mesh will be exhibited at the carpenters workshop gallery, london from october 12th to november 20th, 2015.
