London based, Polish artists Kasia Depta-Garapich and Poppy Whatmore partner with Grymsdyke Farm and Institute of Polish Culture, London to deliver “Re-Domesticated" - a project that will explore the relationship between art objects and functionality.
"Re-Domesticated" is a project directed towards exploring the relationship between fine art and craft in rural setting. The project focuses on production and the reuse of locally crafted items. “Re-Domesticated” will see a collection of new artworks, created by artists Kasia Depta-Garapich and Poppy Whatmore, over a residency period at the Grymsdyke Farm, a research facility for artists/designers. Some of the artworks are planned as fully functional pieces of furniture, vessels and containers.
“Re-Domesticated” is dedicated to initiating interdisciplinary discussion on the relationship between art and utility with involvement from local public and invited guests. The project will be concluded in exhibition and celebratory party at the Farm on 29th of June 2019.
