Contemporary makers have brought to the surfacethe synthesis of the senses, by evolving improvisation, experimentation and innovation.
Crafts are seen as interactions or results between the maker the viewer and the intangible concept.
Music and crafts imply physical relations in order to be experienced; their distinctive essences are always affected by the spaces within which they are displayed or performed.
The exhibition considers the fusion and interrelation of music, art and crafts, showcasing the impact of different approaches as concepts, and experiments in crafts practice, and raises questions about the relevance of both context and content.
It explores the multi-sensual experiences, and reflects on the visual, auditory, olfactory and tactile components of the artwork.
