.OBJ

This exhibition brings together work by selected practitioners who are reinventing the way they shape materials, experiment with aesthetics and engage with the social and political implications of technology.

Designers and craft practitioners continually seek new ways to expand their disciplines, many are now looking to digital technologies as both a medium and a context in which to explore their ideas. This exhibition brings together work by selected practitioners who are reinventing the way they shape materials, experiment with aesthetics and engage with the social and political implications of technology.

.OBJ brings together innovative Irish and International designers, makers and crafters whose work questions the boundaries of these traditional disciplines paving the way for new experimentation and innovation. The exhibition focuses on a return to tactility, featuring contemporary designers who craft objects by hand whilst embracing the digital age. This exhibition will highlight contemporary artists and designers whose work is influenced by the digital world yet crafted by hand, and aims to shed light on the different aspects of this emerging new craft mindset, and aesthetic.

.OBJ is presented as part of the Kilkenny Arts Festival.

Nora O Murchú is a curator & designer, whose research examines the intersections between the fields of art, design, software studies, and politics. Her multidisciplinary practice embraces narratives, and fictions and results in objects, exhibitions, and interventions.
