On the Limits of Making — Research through Crafts
My main issue for exploration concerns when and how a practice or form becomes a legitimate, part of an institution or formulated tradition: what is it that makes us judge practices as excluded and as homeless? I am struck by the extent to which various crafts are linked to the idea that a nation has a particular way of doing things, and that this linkage is further connected to that nation’s particular aesthetics. What is involved in being a part of the excluded outside, of being in a position of homelessness? I am interested in what it is that constitutes belonging and the premises that govern this choice.
