Ruup & Form’s Artist Tag Talk Series

I’m delighted to announce that I’m participating in a series of conversations exploring the meditative creative process of Ruup & Form’s artists, makers and designers; for the exhibition ‘Meditation in Material’ curated for Collect International Art Fair for Craft and Design 2021.

Long before the Covid-19 pandemic – artists, makers and designers were questioning their production methodologies in terms of their economic, environmental and social impact. With the uncertainty of the current health crisis, these matters have become more pressing within all creative industries.
In these peer-to-peer group conversations, the Ruup & Form makers will discuss their process working closely with natural materials and experimenting with their techniques. With a special focus on the cultural shifts in the way society interacts and perceives materials.

The talks will take place in two separate sessions and will be moderated by Ruup & Form Director, Varuna Kollanethu.
Both events are free entry but require prior registration. If you’re interested in joining us, you can register by clicking the link below each event.
