With the exhibition Nova Scotia, HilbertRaum is proud to introduce new, emerging talent from Scotland to the Berlin audience. The artists have been invited through a collaboration with one of the premier sculpture facilities of Scotland, the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, which provides studios, workshops and professional training to materials based artists. Jessica Harrison, Bernie Reid and Yokollection (Francesca Nobilucci & Alexa Hare) adopt the imagery, materials and methodologies of ceramics, fashion, textiles and design to produce work that simultaneously pays homage to and undermines these disciplines historical basis. Rigorously crafted, these objects bridge the gap between functionality and aesthetics, interrogating the hierarchical relationships between fine art, craft and the decorative arts.
