Restructuring Geometry & Words

Aware that COLLECT, the International Fair for Contemporary Objects  had never before exhibited work by artist craftsmen from the middle east or north africa, and being fascinated by the use of calligraphy and  geometry in much of the decorative arts and architecture of the islamic world, Tyger Glyn’s director Miranda Rhys Williams decided to curate an exhibition in which ‘calligraphy’ and geometry were explored both consciously and unconsciously, singly and in combination by top contemporary UK based artists working across several  media (vellum, ceramic, jewellery, cabinetry, willow) and where possible also from the islamic world. The result was: Restructuring Geometry & Words. Request a catalogue for more information about the exhibition and the artists represented.
