HOLDER FEATURES THE WORK OF EIGHT EMERGING CRAFTSPEOPLE FROM MULTIPLE DISCIPLINES EXPLORING OUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE ITEMS WE CHOOSE TO SURROUND OURSELVES WITH AND THE VALUE WE PLACE ON THEM. CONSIDERING THE NOTION OF HOLDING, OF THINGS, SPACE AND SPECULATION; HOLDER IS A MULTI-MATTER EXPLORATION OF HONEST BEAUTY THROUGH POSSIBILITY. MATTER VS VOID, FUNCTION VS ORNAMENT; HOLDER RESPONDS TO THE WAYS IN WHICH AMBIGUITY AND THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTICE OF CRAFT RE-EVALUATES THE ADORNMENT OF SPACE.
