Ten Cubed is excited to announce it will be hosting its first ever guest exhibition. The exhibition over a period of four weeks will feature two artists who are exploring the bridge between art and design. Kate Rohde and Lisa Roet are both from fine art backgrounds with a strong sculptural practice. Their jewellery and artwork are seen as functional sculptures/wearable artworks.
Lisa Roet 30 May – 8 June 2017
Roet’s strong interest in the recurring motif of the hand as a point of communication is clearly emphasised in her jewellery. Made from precocious materials, many of the pieces in the form of cuffs, rings and signature neck pieces, are cast from gorilla and orang-utan specimen skin rubbings emulating a ‘skin on skin’ transferal.
Roet aims to enliven linkages between simians and humans through her thought provoking objects. With an unparalleled creative output that fuses art, design and science in a variety of media, Lisa Roet continues to draw inspiration from primate forms and captivate international audiences.
