Obsessed: Compelled to make

‘Obsessed: Compelled to make’ showcases textiles, ceramics, furniture, metalwork, jewellery, conceptual art, glass blowing and sculptural weaving, inspired by the preoccupations that drive one’s artistic obsession within the creative process.

It looks beyond the finished artwork to tell the hidden stories of making and uncovers the artist’s inspirations, daily studio experiences and the joys and frustrations of their obsessions. Featured artists include Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Honor Freeman, Oliver Smith and Tjunkaya Tapaya, to name only a few.
